A new band has emerged out of a long friendship, and it’s a nice sound. Melodic yet, right on the edge of alternative rock flowing with a bit of jam band. John Meyer, likes to play a harder edge, heavier guitar style, while Matthew Mayes likes to play a more progressive style bluegrass music style. He plays an instrument called the Guijo, which is a stratacaster and a banjo merged together. Put them together with drummer Gene Bass & you get the Raptor Trail. This album actually came out in 2014, so listen to it now. The music is nice, melodic & not too much on the edge. This gets 4 out of 5 Music Guru Stars.
