Old Man Markley:: Down Side Up in an upside down world

Old Man Markley:: Down Side Up in an upside down world
Apart from engaging songs, Old Man Markley caught my attention with talk of taking our liberty under the guise of security (as prospered by the so called benevolent all knowing leaders). Then again, I’m probably being spied on now for even suggesting there’s a problem. Been  a lot of smoke and mirrors, slight of hand, and bait and switch the last several years, but I think some will surely be pleased by the organics  of LA based newgrass band Old Man Markley’s latest album, Down Side Up.

“Train Of Thought”
“Blood On My Hands”
