Sparrow Blue (from the album Rabbit in the Moon)
One fiddle, one guitar, and two voices form Sparrow Blue. The Massachsetts-based duo (Katy Boc, Todd Nickerson) gather a batch of tunes for the recent release, Rabbit in the Moon, ordering a double from the bartender to make a blur of the neon and dull good decisions long enough to enjoy the honky tonk waltz in “Bottom of a Bottle”. The fiddle sets the pace as the instrumental title track scampers and scurries while Sparrow Blue make their own way over “Hudson” as they shift gears on a drive to find love in Pennsylvania, pick out a workers tune on a Cajun rhythm for “Two Steppin’”, and make a bet to turn luck around in “Las Vegas”.
Meeting in 2014, Katy and Todd began writing songs together, going on to perform on stage, balancing recording and performing with a home life that includes five kids and multiple pets. Rabbit in the Moon begins its journey high-stepping as opening cut “Hey Baby Blues” propels forward. The rhythm stays in motion to cruise through “Another Day Older” looking for some cash to hold on to as Sparrow Blue pick out notes for a rain dance to return “Black-Eyed Susan” back to their door and darken the melody and the mood with “Rocks and Snow”.
