“The band Saffell is a trio of musicians led by pianist/songwriter Saffell Sproul, with Bill O’Donnell on drums and Matt Pasquale on bass. For three people, this band makes allot of music! Saffell’s new album “Devil’s On The Radio” is a good example of how less can be more. From the first track “Back Home” and through the entire album, the band establishes their sound of being a tight, funky trio. Band leader Saffell’s formal music training shows through with well-written crisp songs and arrangements. Shifting grooves that will take you from rock to reggae in one song, a left turn when you expect a right. Many musicians are tempted embellish their studio recordings with layers of overdubs and instrumentation that’s not part of the band. Then when you see the band live, it’s not at all what the album was, or the album sounds nothing like the band. This album is the antidote for that. What you see is what you get, three highly talented musicians playing through ”
Ask Saffell anything...
