Wherever You Go (2006)


Feeling a bit camera shy


On their debut album, Wherever You Go, Sweet Wednesday takes listeners traveling across the country to meet unforgettable characters living their lives on the frozen streets of Winter Hill, the subway cars of Brooklyn, the phosphorescent sands of Half Moon Bay, and places in between.

Your guides for the journey are songwriters Dave Falk and Lisa Housman, who perform both as an acoustic duo featuring vocals, guitar, harmonica, and mandolin, and with their band taking it up a notch by adding bass, drums, piano, and Hammond organ.

Characters that make their appearances in Sweet Wednesday songs include a grandmother with a secret crush on James Bond, a traveling dog, and some rats named Grumpy, Sleepy, and Sister Heartache. Their fun, engaging show has played to crowds of all ages at venues ranging from coffeehouses at folky haunts like Club Passim in Cambridge to raucous bars, intellectual college campuses, and the wedding of a couple whose first date was a Sweet Wednesday show.

Songwriting awards include First Place in the Great American Song Contest, First Place in the Dallas Songwriting Competition, and Runner-Up in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition.

Bassist Sean Emery cut his teeth playing rock and blues with Ryan Heartt and Eric Ducoff, currently of Connecticut's acclaimed Ryan Heartt and the Blue Heartts. Over the years, he has performed with several bands, most notably, Western Massachusetts bluesmen Wildcat Bill O'Halloran and Otto "Automatic Slim" Lenz.

James Hayward, a drummer for over sixteen years, brings a variety of jazz and rock sounds to the live show, evoking the sensations of snow falling, rain splashing and thunder crashing.

Keyboard player Tony Cabral adds great piano and Hammond organ chops. Just don't play cards with him. He cheats. Really, really well.
