We asked some of our listeners to describe our music. This is what they had to say:
Tasty acoustic music
Contemporary roots music with a touch of the eclectic
Original & diverse songwriting
S.A.S. - Serious Acoustic Succotash
Both of us are songwriters. We used to almost always write separately (with welcome input from each other), but our latest batch of songs is largely co-written. We didn't plan it that way, it simply evolved as such. Frank would start playing and Luisa would start singing and suddenly (after one...or one hundred hours of work) we had a song! Playing live, we have a couple of guitars, our voices, and a few fun percussion instruments for spice. Depending on the venue, we incorporate covers from some of the artists we love best (always a pleasure to play the music of those who've inspired you!). Influences you ask?
Frank's include: The Beatles, America, Dan Fogelberg, Jim Croce, Maury Muehleisen, Brian Wilson, Motown, James Taylor, Eagles, Crosby, Stills, & Nash, Gordon Lightfoot, Steely Dan, Delta Blues, Tom Meccariello.
Luisa's include: Shawn Colvin, Sheryl Crow, Aimee Mann, Cheryl Wheeler, Paul Simon, Stephen Sondheim!, and The Beatles naturally.
