Amigo's 2014 release, Might Could, garnered great national press and substantial airplay on Americana radio. On And Friends, which will be released on their own Carlisle Beauregard Records, Amigo worked with renowned producer Mitch Easter (R.E.M., Let’s Active) at his Fidelitorium Recordings and engaged a plethora of special guests. The result is another batch of infectious tunes that blend Americana, pop, and rock, with a hint of psychedelia, along with clever lyrics that beg "What's the big idea?"
Mitch Easter comments, “Amigo make music that is, dare I say, joyous! Or maybe we just had fun making the record. Well, we did, but seriously, this is music that will make you feel better. Amigo songs hit that perfect spot between familiarity and freshness, which in another time might mean that there would be a couple of radio hits off this record. You can listen to them for fun or you can listen to them for emotion and resonance. That isn't easy to achieve, and when a band does it you realize you are listening to something real and enduring.”
Amigo comprises lead singer and songwriter Slade Baird on guitar and harmonica, Adam Phillips on percussion and vocals, and Thomas Alverson on bass guitar and vocals.
