In a world where music often mirrors the hustle and bustle of urban landscapes or the serene beauty of untouched nature, there exists a rare gem, a band that draws inspiration from the very soul of Americana roots and alt-folk traditions. Cadosia Street, a 20-piece collective, doesn’t just create music; they cultivate experiences. Their latest album, “The River Inside of Me,” is a journey that traverses the depths of emotion, the expanse of melody, and the richness of storytelling.

From the very first notes of the opening track, “Split Personality,” it’s evident that Cadosia Street isn’t content with just making music; they’re crafting an experience. Each song on this ambitious 18-track collection is woven with threads of nostalgia, innovation, and raw emotion. Led by a cadre of vocalists including the impassioned voices of Paul Lombardo, Juliana Carr Lombardo, Scott E. Moore, Ashley Cash, Wendy Bartel, Sam Schuman, Leon Dunkley, and Wil Hylton, every lyric becomes a vivid scene in the minds of listeners.

But it’s not just the vocals that shine on “The River Inside of Me.” The organic instrumentation, ranging from accordions to guitars, horns to mandolins, and pianos to strings, create a lush tapestry of sound that envelops the listener in a warm embrace. It’s a sonic landscape where every note, every chord, is carefully placed to evoke emotion and stir the soul. Cadosia Street primarily paint their performances in smooth and mellow colors with broad, positive brushstrokes.

Yet, Cadosia Street’s mastery extends beyond the realm of vocal harmonies and instrumental prowess. Their renditions of classics like Stealers Wheel’s “Stuck In The Middle With You,” Curtis Mayfield’s “People Get Ready,” Buddy Holly’s “Every Day,” and Fountain Of Wayne’s “Hackensack” are not mere covers; they’re reinterpretations, infused with Cadosia Street’s signature sound and style.

And then there are the instrumental tracks – “Saria’s Song,” “Irikok Forest,” “Turtle Soup,” and “Space Noodle” – where Cadosia Street showcases their technical virtuosity, seamlessly blending atmospheric ambience with searing guitar-driven motifs.

But perhaps what truly sets “The River Inside of Me” apart is the story behind the music. Conceived during a milestone birthday celebration, the album was born out of love, laughter, and camaraderie. Over nine days in Southwestern New York, amidst the serene beauty of the Delaware River, Cadosia Street’s members came together to create something magical – something that would resonate in the hearts of listeners long after the final notes faded away.

Produced by Edward Scott Michael for MOSO Records, with tracking and extra engineering by Stefan (Vlad) Ilie, and mastering by Gene Paul at G and J Audio, “The River Inside of Me” is a testament to the power of music to unite, inspire, and uplift.

As you journey through tracks like the hauntingly beautiful “Best Of My Heart,” the introspective “A Way,” the rhythmic “No Tomorrow,” and the soul-stirring “We’re All In This Thing Together,” you’ll find yourself drawn deeper into the river that flows through Cadosia Street’s music – a river of emotion, of melody, of life itself. Whether you’re drawn to the infectious organic grooves, the introspective lyricism or the tuneful melodies, there’s something here for everyone to enjoy.

So, let go of your inhibitions, surrender to the music, and let Cadosia Street take you on a journey unlike any other. For within the depths of “The River Inside of Me,” you’ll discover not just music, but the very essence of what it means to be alive.
