DEAD ROCK WEST's recentlyreleased album, MORE LOVE (August via Omnivore Recordings), was produced by John Doe of X who helped create an album that places Wasserman and Drennen's  achingly beautiful signature vocals and harmonies in finely etched rock, alt-country and pop settings.  The sound is both contemporary and timeless. Click here to listen to "Boundless Fearless Love," a joyously infectious standout from the album which was praised by Randy Lewis of Los Angeles Times' Pop & Hiss as he premiered the song (6/21) and noted it is "set to a propellant track that's part R.E.M., part Tom Petty and part Neil Young..."

 

"They have combined all of the influences (alt-country, gospel, Everly Bros) from their previous records into this one," says John Doe. "Great songs. Great playing. Wonderful performances. More Love is heart & soul from two deeply original singers & songwriters." Doe adds: "Somehow Cindy & Frank connect the dots between '70 country & '60 soul music. They are a modern day Gram & Emmylou singing songs that Otis & Carla would sing."

 

MORE LOVE--recorded, mixed and mastered in Los Angeles by multiple Grammy Award-winner Dave Way--is comprised of 12 songs about the joy and heartbreak of love. There are 11 DEAD ROCK WEST originals--among them the joyously infectious first single "Boundless Fearless Love," "Radio Silence"and "Waiting Patiently"--plus a cover of Sam Cooke's "Bring It On Home to Me" that thematically closes this deeply felt album. The masterful band on MORE LOVEincludes D.J. Bonebrake of X, lead guitarist Elliot Easton of The Cars and ace pedal steel guitarist Greg Leisz.
