Andrew Hyra and Brian Bristow formed the genesis of Smokin’ Novas in 2012 when they began co-writing songs for what would become their debut album now in release online and soon in CD format.
The end result is a collection of 10 original songs that pulls together elements of Americana, country, rock, pop and folk. Joining them in the recording was Grammy winning producer Don McCollister, legendary Athens GA producer/engineer and musician John Keane and an all-star lineup including Gerry Hansen on drums, Martin Kearns on keyboards, bassist Robert Henson, two time Georgia State Champion fiddler Andy Carlson and Jeff Mosier on banjo. “I’m prouder of this album than any I’ve ever recorded,” says Hyra. “the album has a rich musical depth and maturity and was great fun to make.”
Hyra, having co-founded former Atlantic Recording artist Billy Pilgrim, and Bristow, having co-founded local Atlanta favorites The Tastemakers and The Highlanders, quickly discovered an easy camaraderie and common vision in their songwriting process that translated well in the studio. Both are also veteran performers having shared the stage with acts as diverse as Mellissa Etheridge, Cowboy Junkies, Richard Thompson, Keb’ Mo’, Simple Minds, Cheap Trick, Carl Perkins, The Smithereens to name just a few.
Already picking up interest from radio stations across the States and in Europe, their debut album delivers for those whose tastes demand seasoned songwriting and equally impressive musical execution. “What excites me about the album is the range of the songs, going from strong up tempo cuts such as “Sunrise” and “Don’t Count Me Out” to beautiful singer/songwriter ballads like “Up on the Mountain” and “Rosemarie” says Bristow. Hyra concurs, “it’s quite a ride and we’re excited to get it out there.”
