Byron Hill: Red Leather Couch

Byron Hill: Red Leather Couch
Title: Red Leather Couch
Label: CD Baby

"An old red leather couch has been the centerpiece of my living room for many years...a place to pass the guitar among friends, sing, talk, write songs, rest, read, enjoy a glass of wine...a place to hang-out with the family. When searching through my catalog for songs to record, I re-discovered this song I wrote about that couch and decided it should become the centerpiece of my new album. Every couch has some stories to tell... some warmly burnished into the leather, some revealed by the scuffs and scratches, and some hiding beneath the cushions with the peanuts and spare change." -BH The Musicians: Paul Scholten - Drums, Percussion, Duncan Mullins - Bass (on tracks: 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 & 13), Jimmy Carter - Bass (on tracks: 1, 2, 7, 9, 11, 12, 14 & 15), Troy Lancaster - Electric Guitars, Mike Rojas - Piano, Organ, Synth, Accordion, Pat McGrath - Acoustic Guitar, Byron Hill - Acoustic Guitar, Lead Vocals, Background Vocals (on tracks: 1, 4, 6, 7, 9, 14, 15), Thom Flora - Background Vocals (on tracks: 2, 3, 5, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13).

'The title tune of hit songwriter Hill's new, 15-track showcase has an easy-going, loping tempo with a "beach-y" vibe. It's a charming ode to loafing, creating, thinking, sleeping, relaxing and having fun on a well-worn item of living-room furniture. Listening to this record might make you fall in love with Music Row song craftsmanship all over again.'- Robert K. Oermann, Music Row Magazine "He's had songs recorded by everybody from George Strait to Sammy Kershaw to Ray Charles. His new CD 'Red Leather Couch' is crazy good."- Tammi Arender, RFD TV "Love 'Red Leather Couch'. Track the song and the track cooks...killer players...and singing better than ever. No faking country here, no 'how to sing country' bullshit affectations, just straight ahead singing. My favorite is 'IT'S JUST A SONG'. Killer. The groove that sticks in my head is 'LOVE IS NOT A CRIME'.....Great job."- William F. Williams, former KRLA radio personality, and artist manager. "Byron presents fifteen great recordings, fully produced with a straight ahead band presentation, letting the songs lead the way. Highly recommended"! - BHP Recordings "Hit Nashville songwriter, Byron Hill, not only shows off his songwriting prowess on this 15-song CD entitled Red Leather Couch, but his vocal performance is exceptional as well. He vocally interprets each song with ease and confidence. From the opening song "Can't Think Of Nothing But You" to the last "Long Fade," his artistry comes to life..." - Brenda L. Madden, Country Entertainment USA.
