I like a little fire with my cinders; shiny chrome under muddy fenders. I'd rather walk through a driving rain than sit at home on a cloudy day.

The CD thrives on the marriage of Thomas Burns’ delicate and reflective songwriting and Sue Prodell’s emotional vocals… The album satisfies as a bittersweet love letter that, despite its title, is never sure which turn leads home.”

Takin’ on the Rain

Takin’ on the Rain

  1. Gonna Find Him Someday
  2. Girl At The Gate
  3. When My Dad Comes Home
  4. Takin’ On The Rain
  5. Amber Autumn Days

  9. Tracing The Moon On The Windows
  10. I Like A Little Fire

  13. We Once Had It All

With Takin’ on the Rain, Madison’s Calico Drifters deliver another easily digested collection of high-lonesome folk-rock and Americana… Burns and the Drifters’ considerably more countrified female singer, Sue Prodell… manage to catch the subtleties of a troubled mind and the flickering warmth of a temporary love with real grace.”

  13. I’m Goin’ Away

In a year filled with numerous outstanding local CD releases, along comes another, an album that is equally winsome and poignant. Dreams Are The Ponies We Ride is hauntingly sparse, conjouring images of rural American landscapes, wide-open places and people scarred by life’s tribulation, and the music creates its own overtones of wisdom and pain, insight and sadness… I would highly recommend this recording to anyone who appreciates traditional folk styles and the pastoral form of Americana music.”
