About MavericksnMisfits

After many decades of working in set bands, trying to scale the walls of the recording industry and remain un-jaded and creative, I felt it was time to do my own thing. Formerly the front man/bassist/song writer for NYC band Agents of Karma I jumped ship, ditched all my outside musical projects and focused entirely on Mavericks n Misfits. I could not realize the 6 songs on this release with any of the bands I was working with. I hired players I admired and wanted to work with and along with long time friend and studio engineer Mario Salvati, produced 6 original songs exactly the way I wanted them to be. I have a very eclectic musical palate. I'm also not one to want to control every last musical note. I fully expected the musicians involved to bring their creativity and spontaneity to the sessions with them. Much to my joy that's exactly what happened. As a bassist I create foundations, but leave it to my fellow musicians to help build the rest of the musical house. Each composition is a window in and of itself. I didn't want to create an over all sound in a particular Genre. So there are elements of Rock, Reggae, Bossa Nova, Prog Rock, Tango + a touch of Brazil on these tunes. Not to be confused with "Lunch at the link I try to seamlessly fuse all these styles as if they were always meant to be together. It's really up to the listener to decide if I accomplished that goal or not. I hope you enjoy the product as much as I did creating it. It was a work of love. This music was made with the help of Jon Diaz all guitars, Mathias Kunzli all drums and percussion, Rob Cohen, Piano, Synths and Organ + Mark Birkey all Keyboards on the song The Big Emo. Cheers Jay Peace Out!

Mavericks n Misfits "The Big Emo" now on CD Baby

Well my friends and fans of the music of
Mavericks n Misfits it’s been a long time
since I’ve composed a news letter. But,
I have a great reason for doing so today!
As of Sunday July 15th the 6 song Mavericks
n Misfits EP “The Big Emo” was released for
purchase and digital distribution via CD Baby.
So for those who have asked where can I buy
and download songs by Mavericks n Misfits
you can do so here:
link

Also you will be able to stream it on sites like
Spotify shortly, find it on I-tunes and amazon
music and a multitude of other sites in the coming
days n weeks. Eventually I will create physical Cd’s
for sale and put out feelers for potential live gigs
should there be enough interest.

I thank you for being patient, it’s a hard road these
days to be a solitary song writer and shoulder all
the costs of producing your own music. But it’s all
been worth it as indicated by the many letters I get
from N1M Members and the outstanding reviews some
have posted about the songs.

Happy listening Jay C. Mavericks n Misfits

Calling all surfers!

This song is clearly my quirkiest of the 6 songs from Mavericks n Misfits. I originally wrote it about people who troll online chat rooms and some shady dating services. It's a call to be clear and truthful at a time when so many people create these fake avatars for themselves via Facebook and else where. I had fun with this tune and I tried to end on a positive note! It's my version of a Tango, or at least as close as this gringo will get to Tango! The middle bridge and ending sections are my nod to bands like King Crimson. I tried to capture a sort of demented carnival atmosphere with the keyboard sounds. Has with the other Mavericks n misfits songs, the players out did themselves. Enjoy: "Calling All Surfers"

The Big Emo

All 6 songs from my Mavericks n Misfit project have been posted, even got a few reviews for the song "Baby it's you" This news letter is to promote the title song for the M+M project "The Big Emo" It's my attempt at a big song, with giant chorus. But, for me it was also about how fragile our feelings can be. And how we often feel so far away from each other emotionally. But not to worry because as the song says "Even in darkness, love can still be found" I hope you enjoy listening to "The Big Emo" as much has I enjoyed recording it. Namaste! Jester ;)

It's time to release the "Drifter"

This song has some history behind it. It's title came from
a performance art cabaret I had written way back in 1991.
I created this character called the Drifter who doubled has
an MC to tie together my non linear story line.

Long story short I had always wanted to write a song based
on one of the stories told by the Drifter during my show.
So after many years on the back burner of my imagination
here it is.

Again huge shout out to Jon, Mathias, Rob and Mario for
all they brought to realize my little dream. I give you: The Drifter!
