With the same staple rock hooks of songwriter Christoph Krey, The Goddess (2012) is an introduction to the new Americana sound that is paving a different road for McAlister Drive. This ten song album has a common connection of maturing through the interaction of the extreme beauty and personality in human relationships. The emotion found in this album, finds a healthy way to worship togetherness and move in a positive direction. McAlister Drive finds their new refreshing resonance in songs like Devil’s Ghost and Path, where the listener can enjoy the sounds of a pedal steel by Universal Recording Artist Matt Pynn, New Orleans horns by Paul Ahlstrand and Scott Aruda, blues guitar licks from Tim Gearan, smooth Hammond B3 organ by Benjamin Zecker, and the orchestral masterwork of Scarlett Deering. Created as a follow up to MD’s 2010 EP release of Missing Figures, The Goddess completes the listener’s desire for new songs with the same production backed by two time Boston Music Award’s Producer of the Year, Ed Valauskas of Q Division Studios in Somerville, Massachusetts.
