Unfinished Business from OneDay40. Matchbox Twenty in a streetfight with the Eagles.
OneDay40.... was formed in late 2005 by four Glasgow guys seeking a new outlet for their desire to write and perform. Former members of top Scottish contemporary country band Evangeline (two UK country 1 hits and regulars on the touring scene) they wanted to take their musical experiences in a new direction. Still fiercely loyal to their country roots but recognising the other influences on their musical development - think of the Eagles battling it out with Matchbox 20, or Keith Urban dueling Telecasters with Bruce Springsteen.
The guys have just finished recording their first album in Glasgow's famous Park Lane Studios (Texas, Del Amitri, The Proclaimers, James Grant etc.) under the watchful eye of Paul McGeechan (formerly of Love and Money). Contributions include a duet with legendary Glasgow voice Horse, some great guitar work from famous Glasgow bluesman Alan Nimmo, and just the right enough amount of steel guitar from Zac Ware of the Proclaimers. Available for purchase on iTunes, the CD is a great mix of contemporary and popular, country and rock, upbeat and mournful. Frequently recognised for their songwriting ability the Naismith / Matthews combination delivers yet again.
