"Whiskey Costs Money"

Michael and Milo met in 2008 at Palmyra Studios in Palmer, Tx and began collaborating/writing down their ideas. From 2008-2010 the two worked in the studio on creating a pop/reggae sound based on rootsy, Americana driven ideas. One of the songs that came out was "Whiskey Costs Money," the title of their debut album. The record centers around a central character who tells stories about what it's like to grow up poor in America, the track "Bobby" is based on the wild and fantastic tales of Bob Joplin, a gunslinging native of Texas who founded The Filling Station Bar, a locally famous hideout where he rubbed elbows with Mickey Mantle. The record is also dedicated to Carmine's parents who grew up in Bridgeton, NJ with no more than the shirt on their backs and a sandlot. The record is indicative of Carmine's travels and experiences in his life and is evident on "Feelin It Irie" and "Sweet Joplin." What makes Michael Carmine unique is his ability to keep a crowd's attention with his stories and his voice, when he sings people listen.

Bio

Michael C Rainier began working at Palmyra in 2008. Over the course of the next year, he developed material and fostered a working relationship with the owner of the studio, Paul "Pappy" Middleton. The title track, "The Road Song," co-written with Conn O'Flynn, is about growing up in the south and is based on the wild and fantastic tale of a musician from Dallas who comes to a crossroads in his life and reflects on his travels and experiences across Texas and California. What makes his music unique is his ability to appeal to people from all walks of life.
