“If you haven’t heard their new CD yet, I highly recommend it. Great songs, cool arrangements, expert musicianship…GOOD STUFF!” – Matt Watroba (Folk DJ, Singer/Songwriter)
“It is lovely, evocative, and well written.” – David Barrett, Grammy Award Winning Songwriter (“One Shining Moment”)
“A solid, entertaining album that you will listen to until it wears out. Outstanding production quality, virtuoso guitar and mandolin work (without being overdone). Annie’s wonderful lead vocals, smooth harmonies, fascinating songwriting, an upbeat feel even when the subject is a bit downbeat, a toe-tapper and then some.” – Al Kniola, The Back Porch, 88.1 WVPE Public Radio

More about this recording
Recorded at Big Sky Recording in Ann Arbor by Geoff Michael and mastered by Glenn Brown at GBP Studios in E. Lansing, Searching for Neverland, features a stellar cast of highly sought after Michigan players; Jason Dennie (Thunderwude) on mandolin and harmony vocals, Dan Ozzie Andrews (Cold Tone Harvest) on bass, Mike Shimmin (the olllam) on drums and Drew Howard (Madcat’s Midnight Blues Journey) on pedal steel and dobro as well as the great jazz drummer, Pete Siers (Paul Keller Orchestra) on several tracks.
Searching for Neverland is The Capps’ long anticipated follow up to their acclaimed 2009 release, My Blue Garden. They took their time writing this album and it delivers songs that have been road-tested, finely crafted and meticulously arranged over the past 6 years. By design this album is stylistically diverse, yet the songs work together as a collection of whimsical and smart, reflections and stories. Musically, it retains the familiar Capps sound that meets at the intersection of Americana & Folk with rock, jazz and bluegrass influences. With Searching for Neverland, Annie & Rod have remained true to their narrative “songs about broken things and poignant little ponderings delivered with a rootsy vibe, a touch of twang and a soulful groove.”
