CALICO THE BAND, short for “California Country,” returns with theirsignature intimate and tight harmonies on their sophomore album UNDER BLUE SKIES (California Country Records) out Friday, September 15. During release week, the band will be performing twoofficial AmericanaFest Showcases in Nashville, TN.

The band’s harmonies light up such standout tracks as “The 405” (the video for which premiered last month with AXS.com), “Cold Cold Love,” and “The Leaving Kind” a song about about loving a desperado who can’t sit still (unveiledon The Bluegrass Situation; listen here). CALICO THE BAND also delivers an inspired arrangement of Mamas & The Papas’ classic “California Dreamin’.”
UNDER BLUE SKIES follows the band’s debut album which was praised by Terry Roland of No Depression who raved, “The best of L.A.’s country past, present and future clearly emerges from Calico’s debut, Rancho California.” The opening track, “Fine Line,” tells the quintessential story of so many aspiring artists who come to L.A. in hopes of realizing their dreams, and everyone in Southern California who travels their way along miles of gridlock freeway knows “The 405.” Here, on Proffit’s only solely-penned album track, love blossoms against the backdrop of an all-too-familiar L.A.
