FULL ALBUM PREMIERE: Domenic Cicala Delivers Timeless Harmonies On ‘Come On Over (Honky Tonk Duets)’ LP 

Hailing from the D.C. area, Domenic Cicala – A singer/songwriter with a love for the 3 minute song.  Largely influenced by the holy musical trinity of Hank, Elvis and Bruce and owing all his musical acumen to the sagely philosophy of Woody Guthrie “If you play more than 2 chords you are showing off”.   Domenic is a Roots Rock/Americana artist who performs his own compositions as well as digging deep into the covers catalog.

Domenic was recently referred to as a “newcomer”.  His first public performance was in 2008 and  his first record was released in 2014.  The CD called Who’s Foolin Who, which garnered a Wammie nomination for “Best Roots Rock recording”,  is a record that brings together many musical elements and styles from country punk waltz to Memphis style R&B to quirky folk/pop. The record features the cream of the crop of DC musicians, as well as guest appearances by Birds of Chicago and Rachel Harrington.

Glide is thrilled to premiere Cicala’s new album Come On Over (Honky Tonk Duets) a soon to be timeless collection of songs that sounds like a long lost could have been Gordon Lightfoot/Linda Rondstandt album. Cicala delivers with a spectral croon that rings in a tender warmth and shiny upside reserved for 70’s folk legends. Come On Over (Honky Tonk Duets) is out this Friday- check it out in full below.

“Life’s circumstances fell in line.  I was able to get some of the finest voices I know to come in and record an album of duets.  What singer doesn’t want to sing alongside some of the voices they love and admire? I didn’t necessarily set out to do a country record, but when we were done… that’s what I had. I pure labor of love,” says Cicala.

“Come On Over Features BettySoo, Jaimee Harris, Rachel Harrington, Mindy Miller, Michelle Hannan, and Janine “Wilson.  This project was over 3 years in the making and covers artists such as BeeGees, Townes Van Zandt, Dave Alvin and more. This record has the feel of a great classic country album and like those classics every song is so good it’s hard to pick just one or two.”
