Whiskey Business returns to Red Space on Friday, November 9 - Limited Tickets Available Here!

On his debut solo album, Last of Seven, Train’s Pat Monahan sticks to the placid mom-rock that’s made his band a hit with the picking-up-the-kids-after-soccer-practice set. Producer Patrick Leonard (who’s applied tons of studio gloss to chart-topping records by Elton John and Madonna) polishes Last Seven to a radio-ready glow; guests Brandi Carlile, Graham Nash, and Richie Sambora add weight. Still, Monahan jumps off Train’s one-stop musical track a few times to offer personal and meditative songs about pirates, cowboys, and other mythical heroes he apparently identifies with. It’s a welcome break for the singer and songwriter, who insists this solo excursion is merely a chance to try some new sounds and work with fresh collaborators. All aboard! www.hob.com for more information.
