MP3 Black Squirrels - Paying For Your Pleasure

Black Squirrels are influenced by the rich tradition of American country music. Although their reverence for the past runs deep, this is not a retro act. Black Squirrels meld a modern, literate twist onto the old forms.

BLACK SQUIRRELS offer an aural respite from Omaha’s indie rock din. The band embodies many styles from the rich tradition of American country music. However, this is no retro act: Black Squirrels meld a modern, literate twist onto the old forms. Although proficient players, a premium is placed on strong, original songs (and a few choice covers), whether it’s a four-to-the-floor barnburner, or a gently swaying waltz.

"Paying For Your Pleasure" (Nectar & Venom Records), adds a few new wrinkles to the band’s sound without a drastic change. The ensemble’s debut CD, "Last Of The Ghost Town Gang," was released in May 2007 to positive reviews.

For the year 2007, the group was nominated for three (3) Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards (OEAs), including “Best New Artist,” “Best/Folk/Roots/Americana,” and “Best Country/Bluegrass.”

In 2008 the group performed at Rosenblatt Stadium, Earth Day Omaha, The Omaha Summer Arts Festival, Mid-American Music Festival, OEA Summer Jam, private parties, several benefits, and was one of only four local acts asked by Opera Omaha to turn a poem into a song in conjunction with the premiere of Ted Kooser’s "Blizzard Voices."

Black Squirrels formed in 2006, and is comprised of:
Kat Smith (vocals/guitar), Kate Williams (accordion/vocals/keyboard/percussion), Travis L. Sing (doghouse bass/vocals), Tim Cich (electric guitar/mandolin).

"Forget about the sophomore slump. It''s more like a sophomore surge....''Paying For Your Pleasure,'' finds the band with another batch of well-crafted material, from playful country stompers to tear-in-your-beer ballads."– Niz Proskocil, Omaha World-Herald, 10.2.08
