UK based Americana band the Open Secrets launch their second album “Rain Upon the Sea” on 17 October 2015 at the Dance Centre in Abergavenny.
The 10 original songs on “Rain Upon the Sea” cover an eclectic range of subjects that run from the Tour de France, to the perils of riding the rodeo, holocaust survival and the decline of the American South-East. Even so there is space for the usual suspects - love, passion and betrayal.
Steve Page has a real passion for storytelling through songwriting and performing. His solo album “The Age of Plenty” (2011) won praise on both sides of the Atlantic.
Steve formed the Open Secrets in 2012 and the band have been gigging regularly building a devoted fan-base along the way. With instrumentation that includes banjo and violin it’s no surprise that FATEA magazine compared them to Americana legends the Old Crow Medicine Show.
Describing the new album, Steve Page said: “Rain Upon the Sea” has been two years in the making. We are not slow in acknowledging our musical debts to the greats of the Americana music from Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash through to modern day artists such as Gillian Welch. But I hope, that with this new album, we demonstrate that we are capable of making our own distinct contribution”.
