NEW YORK progressive country music group Cady Cable came jointly in early 2008 when singer/songwriter and guitarist Sam Riley linked up with singer and multi-instrumentalist Nila Leigh, who had played upright bass in the Chris Merenda album Hi there Independence. Bassist John Cunard, a veteran of steel and alternative rings in NEW YORK, joined with time for the group to record its debut record, Ten Acres, in rural traditional western Massachusetts. The record, a couple of extra, roomy story-songs, was released in Oct 2008 and described the band’s sound as gradual and mournful, evoking Townes Truck Zandt and, in the harmonies of Riley and Leigh, a number of the better occasions of Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris. Drummer Nick Cisik, who acquired briefly used Riley within a music group known as Miss Stanton’s Guys in 2006, became a member of Cady Cable at year’s end as the group started playing displays throughout NEW YORK. Ten Acres was implemented in ’09 2009 with a very-limited-release lo-fi EP, Pyrite, with record artwork hand-designed and built by musician Angie Pickman. By springtime 2009 Cady Cable was at the job on the full-length follow-up to Ten Acres, using the working name Winter’s Kids.
