Liam speaks about the new tunes - 

We set out with the goal to record two new original songs in the tradition of early 60's country music and I believe we have achieved it. 
I spent hours with the engineer/mixer, Colin Nelson, listening to Ray Price, Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, George Jones, Wynn Stewart, Ernest Tubb, and Lefty Frizzell records from the early to mid 60's. We picked out our favorite aspects from those old LP's and applied them to our songs. When it was time to record and mix, I worked closely with Colin, and the masterer, Doug Krebs, to ensure we followed thru with the goal of new original material recorded with that early 60's stereo LP vibe.
I'm very pleased with the tunes and hope you enjoy them as well.


The previous release from Liam Fitzgerald and the Rainieros is titled, "Last Call", and is a collection of 10 original honky tong songs written by Liam. The album was produced and engineered by Johnny Mercury, and mastered by Ryan Foster Mastering in Portland, OR. This new recording features some of the finest country western musicians the Northwest has to offer. It was chosen by CMT's The Edge as one of the Top 10 Albums of 2012.

The current live lineup features Liam on guitar and vocals, Tyler Johnson on bass, Donnie Staff on drums, Nicole Fallat on fiddle, and Jonathon Stuart on lead guitar!
