‘Foothill Freeway’ Press Roundup!

I am happy to report Foothill Freeway has received some great reviews over the past few months since it’s release! Here is what some folks have to say about the record:

“Just as Roger McGuinn, Gram Parsons and company had done decades earlier, Mancini’s crew crafts a warm, organic sound bearing deep country roots, but still informed by rock ‘n’ roll.”

Foothill Freeway is by far Mancini’s strongest work yet.”
– No Depression

“With a deep sense of purpose and tremendous craft, Mancini catalogues the foibles and failings of men and women, lovers and nations, a tapestry of all-too-human humanity.”
-The Daily Vault

“Like the perfect pair of your favorite boots, caked with dirt and broken in from excessive wear, [Foothill Freeway] is a record that will stand the test of time and surely get its use from the owner.”
– Red Line Roots

Foothill Freeway contains ten tremendous songs by a singer songwriter who is at the very peak of his powers and who should really be spoken of in the same way as Farrar, Tweedy, Adams were in their early days of worldwide acclaim…”
– American Roots UK

“[Foothill Freeway] is both an homage to past greats such as the Byrds as well as a fitting statement by Mancini that American roots music never can and never will fade away.”
– Good Times Magazine

“[Mancini’s] eye for telling detail in his lyrical observations and his knack for ingratiating hooks helps to set him apart from the Americana pack.”
– Culture Sonar

Foothill Freeway is currently available over at Bandcamp and wherever else music is streamed or sold!
