Maria Sebastian
-Songs I wrote in the Car- 
By Bob Silvestri

I adore Maria Sebastian. As a singer songwriter she is up there with the best in my opinion. As a live performer she has never failed to entertain me whether in a cover band, solo or with her own band. Her latest release Songs I Wrote in the Car offers an acoustic batch of songs that she has not recorded before but felt the need to document and as a way to focus on writing new material. She gets helps here from three Buffalo Music Hall of Famer's Jerry Agustyniak on drums, Jim Whitford on guitar and Nelson Starr on guitar. Cave Wilson (drums), Tom Mangione (bass) and Tim Mroz (bass) also lend a hand. "In Our Bed" finds Sebastian going from tears to anger in her tale of a broken relationship. Her sincere vulnerability is exposed on "Nothin" To Me" and the up tempo full band sound of "Easier" features some nice guitar work from Whitford. "Goin Away", "I Should've Known" and "The Driver's Side" score here as well. For more on one of my favorites Maria Sebastian and how to purchase her CD's go to www.mariasebastian.com
