Mark Growden & the Electric Piñata

“Growden’s Music is a calliope of tangos, marches, pedal steel blues, and eloquent acoustic ballads. In his hands, parade scores unravel to become inebriated waltzes. Ballads are stretched thin and poked with forks. Melodies dance like wicked children. He’s adept at knocking traditional notions of music slightly off kilter, to better fit our ears.”
