“‘Penitent’ [from Dry River Redemption] is a Dylanesque story song of downtown trains and wistful longing with strings and steel guitar, with echoes of Steve Earle and the late great Townes Van Zandt.” - Julie Jennings Patterson, Tucson Sentinel  

Mark's latest collection of songs, Dry River Redemption,  is a journey through urban hollows, dusty rural streets, darkened alleys, untamed rivers, and dried up tributaries--through the minds of characters both imagined and real. The album was recorded with help from Oscar Fuentes (producer and recording artist from Guadalajara, Jalisco) and with some of the best players in the southwest.

 

The album features Bruce Halper (Sand Rubies/Sidewinders) on drums, Thøger Lund (Giant Sand) on bass, and Oscar Fuentes on a variety of instrumentation. Other accompaniment includes Alvin Blaine, Heather Hardy, Rich Hopkins, Damon Barnaby, Tom Walbank and Billy Sedlmayr (who also co-wrote one of the tracks). 

 

Dry River Redemption is now available on Bandcamp and Soundcloud.

"For a river-rafting enthusiast like Febbo, there's a natural connection between a river and a journey. There's unknown danger, awe-inspiring beauty, and moments that swing from calm to climactic ... As a musician and songwriter, he's always reaching for something new as well, for making progress to somewhere he's never been." - Eric Swedlund, Tucson Weekly
