Ruby Free - Introducing Ruby Free. OUT NOW!

"Introducing Ruby Free" is a lush arrangement of songs that evoke feelings of nostalgia of music and  times gone by, with echoes of "ELO" and "Wings" even some of "The Who's" later offerings, (check out the intro to "Three Cheers For The Sun God") playing on the radio, but better, so much better!
This collection of sun drenched songs really hit the spot, sweet harmonies, well crafted lyrics and songs, this isn't a grower and there isn't a filler track in sight, this album is purely and simply, beautifully immediate.

Somewhere, deep in the valley, just northwest of Los Angeles, lives a family. Together they grow tomatoes, grapes, and very large lemons. They have visitors from time to time like raccoons, snakes, coyotes, and possums. They also have a little husband and wife band called Ruby Free. 
The players are Rick Hromadka and Lisa Cavaliere. Rick hails from veteran LA power pop bands Double Naught Spies and
 Maple Mars.
Lisa is an ex-choir girl, whose unique vocal stylings bring to mind Suzanna Hoffs. Their debut album "Introducing Ruby Free" is a delicious
blend of Paul and Linda McCartney melodies and sunny "Laurel Cyn" harmonies, producing a familiar yet new distinctive sound. The upbeat
theme of the album captures a band not taking itself too seriously, and living in the moment.

A three time Emmy Award winning sound editor and mixer, singer/songwriter/producer Rick Hromadka took a lo-fi approach to the production, and the songs echo tones of 1970's radio. Pulling back on "the gloss" was key! Lisa, who comes from a family of singers, adds a delicate female
perspective to songs like Bongos And Beards, Deep In Valley, and Three Cheers For The Sun God. Her lead vocal on the infectious "Tiny Stars" hallmarks
her range.

Rick Hromadka's last album "Galaxyland" (Maple Mars) drew quotes like, "Album of the year" - Bill Kopp (Musosribe), "A psychedelic masterpiece" - Mike
Lidskin (Twirl Radio), "Somewhere between Brian Wilson's Smile and Big Star" - Robert Kinsler (Orange County Times). Critics are already anticipating
the July 31st release of "Introducing Ruby Free", and the warm fuzzy sound will have everyone singing along soon!
