Mankinds Remedy

Full Album show of August 10, 2019
Album: Faceless

Rock ‘n Roll born in the Heart of Cajun Country you say? No accordion or washboard with spoons? Correct! Starting in their early teens, Travyn Hargrave (17) and Bennett Price (18), took an interest in the popular Classic Rock songs from the 70’s (Hendrix, The Doors, Led Zeppelin…) and the wave of what is now known as Alternative Rock from the 90’s (Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Sound Garden…) and started cranking out some songs of their own. Turn the page and a couple years later, someone dropped a bomb in my shed, Mason Dugas (17) and Mankind’s Remedy was born. With the end of their Junior year approaching and the beginning of their Senior year as members of the Kaplan High Band grinding a halt to the trio’s jam sessions, we had to act now or never! In comes, Justin Tocket of Dockside Studio in Maurice, LA, with 25 years behind the soundboard, to accept our appointment for a day at the studio. On March 17th, 2018 we put in a full 12 hour day and voila! 6 Original and 2 cover tracks were laid down and ready for mixing and mastering! My once steady heart and mind was now awash, in the now distant memory of what was once some pretty good tunes coming out of the shed, to the pure Rock Magic pouring out through the studio speakers. Witnessing the birth of music for the first time was akin to witnessing my sons being born; life changing! Reeling off of the musically-induced high from that day, more creations began to take form (this time in a Blue Bird School Bus we picked up at an auction, and then insulated and air-conditioned) until they had
another batch of potential hits ready to slam down in the pages of history. And so on July 14th, 2018, an additional 7 Original tracks were recorded for mixing and mastering (once again at Dockside by Justin Tocket). Now with 12 mastered tracks prepared by engineer Shelley Anderson (previously with Masterfonics and Georgetown Masters in Nashville, and now with her own studio “Black Lab Mastering” in Louisville, KY), we are releasing our debut album “Faceless”.

About the Album:
Travyn Hargrave (Songwriter/Composer, Vocals and Lead Guitar), Bennett Price (Drummer), and Mason Dugas (Bass and Vocal Harmony) are the 3 members of Mankind's Remedy. Together they’ve been jamming since their early teens and their passion for music continues to grow daily. In 2018 they cut their debut 12 track rock album Faceless at Dockside Studio in Maurice, LA and sent them off to Black Lab Mastering in Louisville, KY for the final touch. Their music is being described as having a 70's Classic Rock vibe on some tracks, while others are catching a 90's Alternative/Grunge feel. Artists like Gregg Allman, Tom Petty, Motor Head and Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Stone Temple Pilots just to name a few, is what random online reviewers and even some publications are associating with their music's style.
You'll just have to hear it and see where it takes you...
