Michael Schatte – Hard Ticket (2006)

May 18, 2009

Artist: Michael Schatte
Release: Hard Ticket
Year: 2006
Home: Originally from Chatham

   Michael began his early career in music in a Chatham blues band called Midnight Mojo.
   Michael Schatte:  all vocals and instruments including electric, acoustic, and 12 string guitars; drums; electric bass; mandolin; violin; German button accordion; piano accordion; organ, piano, and electric piano synths; harmonica; and various percussive items
   All songs written by Michael Schatte except tracks 3, 6, 7, 9, 11, and 12

   Recorded at Mithrandir Studios, Chatham, ON, Canada between the months of May and August, 2005
Mastered by Bob Hiltz at Eyrespace Studios, Chatham, ON

   Though Hard Ticket is unapologetically guitar-driven, it also showcases Michael’s considerable chops on both the mandolin and violin, both of which add wonderful colour to the album’s already diverse palette. There’s something on this record for everyone – searing blues, rootsy pop-rock, bluegrass, New Orleans flavoured “feel-good music”, country, folk and even instrumental celtic-rock – it’s both difficult to categorize and easy to enjoy!

1. Turn
2. Room For Me 
3. Hey Pocky Way
4. Crying Uncle  
5. The Hardest Part
6. Tear Stained Letter
7. If You Be My Baby 
8. Slow Burn 
9. All Work and No Play
