Happy Curmudgeons are well, more than happy to announce the release of the lead single from their upcoming 2020 release, “2nd Chances.”
Written by their own Amy Dixon-Lavery and Dave Hamilton, “2nd Chances” was then produced by none other than the Bob Seger Band’s Mark Byerly who also did the string arrangement as well. Alongside those three heavy hitters were a handful of other talents from the Bob Seger Band; Jim “Moose” Brown (B3 organ), and Laura Creamer, Barbara Payton, and Cathleen Wiley on backing vocals. Rounding out the myriad of skilled performers found on this track are Detroit legend and award-winner Takashi Iio (bass), Rick Beamon (drums), David Patton (violin), and Chaz Oswley (cello).
Almost a dozen musicians in all came together under the guidance of Byerly to make this song come to life and it shows. A great lead single, “2nd Chances” is a sample of what’s to come from their classic meets folk rock sophomore album that’s slated to drop in early 2020. It’s the highly anticipated followup to 2017’s Meant to Be. An album fans of everyone from Bob Dylan to the late Jerry Garcia would appreciate and hold dear. Bringing the beauty of classic rock back to the masses has been the name of the game for Happy Curmudgeons since they came to be in 2015.
