Angel Dream’ and ‘No Second Thoughts,’ by the Marshall Pass

If you caught the recent extravaganza tribute to the late Tom Petty at Vincent’s, you had a chance to see some of the area’s most remarkable musicians tackling a wide range of the legendary songwriter’s immense songbook. If you’re looking for a little bit more in that vein, you may want to check out the Marshall Pass’ covers of the Petty deep cuts, “Angel Dream” and “No Second Thoughts.”

The songs are sung by Craig Rawding and played by Duncan Arsenault, with backing vocals on the former by Annie Arsenault and Keri Anderson, and both recordings are exquisite. Rawding and Duncan Arsenault are able to build a rich soulfulness, capturing the layers of depth inherent in the songs. They’re moody and beautiful, and as fine a tribute to the music icon as any packed house.

If you want to hear more from these artists, Duncan Arsenault will perform Wednesday at Vincent’s, and he and Rawding will perform with the Curtis Mayflower Jan. 19 at Bull Mansion.
