Boston, MA's Mornin’ Old Sport, a three piece consisting of Berklee College of Music alumns Kate Smeal (vocals, strings), Scott Nanos (guitar, bass, keys, strings), and Jeff Price (drums, production engineering) have released their debut album this past week. Their name, deriving from the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic The Great Gatsby, is just one example of their true devotion to what they describe as "neo pre-war Americana." With influences like Gene Autry, The Ink Spots, Doris Day and Hank Williams, their music oozes with vintage verses that render audiences with a taste of American-music history. At the same time though, it's classic music through the prism of a new generation. The band is being welcomed to the San Francisco/Bay Area with open arms as they currently undergo a two month long summer long tour, taking them all over the US. Check it out the full list of remaining dates below.
