Jennifer Gadway and Katy Cole make up the band Decadence.
The local country-rock duo of Jennifer Gadway and Katy Cole — a.k.a. Decadence — will hold a CD release party for “Tales From the Mountains” at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17 at the Copperfield Inn ballroom on Main Street in North Creek.
“Tales From the Mountains” is an EP they recorded at Oceanway Studios on Music Row in Nashville. It was engineered by Patrick McMakin, who has worked with many great country musicians, including Willie Nelson, Brooks and Dunn, Dolly Parton and N Sync.
“Tales from the Mountains” is a cycle of songs that tell a wild and vivid tale of life, lust, love, and death. It has already been praised by some of the biggest names in country music as “new, fresh, and unlike anything you’ve heard.” New tracks — “Too Much Fun” and “Dogtown Cadillac” — have already received airplay from numerous radio stations and have had a huge response from listeners and fans.
This CD is a followup to the duo’s first album, “Love Loud,” released in 2012.
Gadway and Cole formed Decadence in 1996. They started out as a cover band playing in North Creek and their local area of the Adirondacks. After a brief hiatus, they reunited with a new idea as to what Decadence would become. Gadway’s strong voice and country influence mix with Cole’s blues and rock influences. The band also includes Chris Schempp, Tommy Ryzuk and Matt Dower.
Since June, they’ve regularly played in New York City at notable venues such as Tammany Hall, and the Shanghai Rock Hotel. They’ve also done strings of shows in Nashville, Orlando and Tampa, Fla.
While band members are excited about their upcoming release of “Tales from the Mountains,” they are still hard at work in the studio completing their full length album.
