"Mercury Gets A Moon" is the fourth solo album from Andrew D. Huber and is an acoustic-rock-celtic-folk hootenanny throw-down of an album that showcases his songwriting craft. Inspiring anthems, heart-wrenching ballads, celtic pop, foot-stomping boozers, and confessional lyrics lay side-by-side, successfully fighting each other for the best side of the bed. Key tracks on the 15-song album include "My Heart Somewhere", "San Antonio Greyhound", "Tell the Devil", "Broken Sky", and the rousing title track.
"Mercury Gets A Moon" is the fourth full-length solo release from Andrew D. Huber and was recorded between December 2013 and October 2014 for NorthLight Records.
My goal in writing and recording "Mercury Gets A Moon" was to create an album that lived up to my commitment to write, record, and perform with sincerity and spirit; no compromise, no quarter. The sheer joy of the project was counter-balanced by the exhaustive drive to simply do my best, and then look back with pride. Once again, the cliched lessons of life always require the greatest effort!
I had the pleasure of working with some incredible musicians on the album. The extensive contributions of Jo Marie Sison on violin and Anthony Jay Houston on drums & percussion gave the songs a whole new level of energy and depth.
On November 1, 2014, Anthony, Jo and I had a final rehearsal for the gig set for the following day to launch the album. The discs had just come in, and as Anthony was getting in his car with his copy, he paused and said, "Ya know, I may be biased -- but I think this may be your best one."
Time will tell, but I was humbly inclined to agree.
