The Mastersons: With Aaron Lee Tasjan


Husband and wife, singing and playing together. And they're each deft instrumentalists, and they've spent years playing in others' bands before coming together as a unit. They're bound by music and an uncommon depth of companionship, they're good enough to make Steve Earle swoon, and all of that sounds quite nice. Cover:$10.00
