“as Carly stated, yes… “it is So good to feel alive.” And that is just what this band does. It makes you feel alive. Chavis strumming a path to follow. The horns calling for the journey. Drums and Bass working together like the beat of a heart. A mythical voice carrying you away. Sultry. Freeing. Sexy. A vision quest that brought me down the rabbit hole. Try it… you will like the trip. I know I did.”
“There was this note. This one note. THE note. In the back of my head, I was thinking: “dayenu:” it would have been sufficient. It would have been sufficient if all I had heard was that ONE NOTE. Or if all I had heard was Carly Foster’s powerful voice. Or if all I had heard was the excellent trio on guitar, bass, and drums. Or if all I had heard was the superb wrangling and intertwining saxophones. It would have been sufficient. But I heard ALL of it. I first saw New Earth Army at the inaugural Downtown River Jam in Ybor City in December. I was totally captivated and was certainly looking forward to a second helping.”
"Every band has their own idea of what success means and the benchmarks they have to reach to get there. It’s a really special group whose ideals include placing a bright spotlight on all the music that makes up the area. This is New Earth Army."
“New Earth Army - Action: The debut full-length album from Beachcomberland’s own funk masters is framed around Carly Cermak Foster’s jazz-infused vocals. “Tears” is a standout, at points reminiscent of Billie Holiday and definitely the type of tune one could envision Lady Day embracing. New Earth Army does a lot of genre hopping, but they manage to bundle it all together in a package that is uniquely them.”
