Honest Mechanik – Boston Album Release Show

Honest Mechanik – Boston Album Release Show
“They’re very rare and you’d travel a great distance to find one.” 

                                    Susan and Paul on why they’re called “Honest Mechanik”

Susan Cattaneo and Paul Hansen are Honest Mechanik, an indie-pop duo born in the wilds of Medford, MA. Together, Cattaneo and Hansen have created a sound that has a warm folk familiarity at its core with a magnetic gloss of modern pop casually racing across the surface. It’s this combination of modern and vintage that is at the crux of the Honest Mechanik identity. Featuring quirky lyrics and ear-worm melodies, this Super Group side project has the groove of The Velvet Undeground paired with the vocal intimacy of Belle and Sebastian. Their self-titled debut album of 10 original songs feature signature dual lead vocals and close harmonies. For this show, they are joined by drummer Marco Giovino’s (Robert Plant, Tom Jones, Buddy Miller) whose  amazingly deep groove lays the rhythmic foundation of the album.

Paul and Susan are both seasoned musicians with successful solo careers on both the local and national music scene. Paul, the tall one, considers himself “song obsessed” and has been the lead singer and creative force behind the popular band The Grownup Noise, an indie pop group that has garnered rave reviews and whose songs have been featured on popular MTV and Netflix shows. Susan, the other tall one, is a 3 times nominee for Americana Artist of the Year at the Boston Music Awards and has won or been a finalist in all the prestigious songwriting festivals around the country and is a “go-to” songwriter for others, having crafted songs for both national and local artists (Mark Erelli, Dennis Brennan, Dinty Child, Jenee Halstead).

“Honest Mechanik already on the list of album of the year contenders.”

Jed Gottlieb (Boston Herald) 

“Honest Mechanik delivers stellar vocals, quirky songs on new album”

Victor Infante (Worcester Magazine)
