about

The Promise of Friday Night, the Twangtown Paramours’ second release, explores themes of second chances, struggle, and hope. Written and performed by Mike T. Lewis and MaryBeth Zamer, the twelve songs on the album are presented acoustically and produced eclectically. This collection of first person and character-driven stories invites the listener to take an intimate and moving trip with Mike and MaryBeth and to find humor and grace along the way.

From the coal mines of Appalachia (“Widow of the Mountain”) to the caverns of New York City (“The Promise of Friday Night”), with songs populated by doubtful lovers (“If I Fall for You”), agnostics (“Heaven is Somewhere Else”), insomniac policemen (“Chains”), and ghosts (“Who Needs Flowers When You’re Dead”), the duo takes you on an everyman’s journey of heartache, tragedy and perseverance. Like the narrator in the album’s title song, the Twangtown Paramours conclude that if you take risks and are brave enough to keep yourself open, the possibilities are endless.

Recorded at Inside Edge Studios in Nashville and produced by Mike T. Lewis, all tracks on The Promise of Friday Night are enhanced in a variety of musical and sometimes unique ways. A few productions contain sparse instrumentation, others are percussive, featuring bouzoukis, washboards and frying pans; others approach the semi-symphonic. Guest musicians are all top-notch players on the Nashville and national scenes and include Rick Lonow on percussion and drums, Jay Vern on piano, Gary DiBenedetto on dobro, and Jim Van Cleve of Mountain Heart on violin and viola.
