The fourth official album by Sinclair Soul, The Good Guys was released in digital format on December 9, 2019. All tracks are original songs composed by Ric Albano and recorded along with an array of fine musicians.
The Good Guys was recorded at the state-of-the-art Eight Days a Week recording studio in Northumberland, PA during the winter / spring of 2018 – 2019. Production of this record included a posse of top-notch musicians and production team, starting with guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Bret Alexander and drummer Ron Simasek, both of whom were central on the previous Sinclair Soul albums, The Journey (2017) and Reflections of Relevance (2018). The expanded lineup for The Good Guys includes vocalist Mycenea Worley, guitarist Phil Brosius, and bassist Paul Smith (who is the owner of Eight Days a Week studio). The album was co-produced by Albano, Smith, Alexander, and audio engineer (and Ric’s son) Jake Albano.
The songs here all originated on acoustic guitar and have grown into an eclectic mix of pop, rock, folk and country with slight elements of blues, jazz and some non-genre specific fusion..
