SMILE WHATEVER is CC RAILROAD's first recording for Elizabeth Records. Co-produced by the venerable Mark Lineberry and the band, this album features songs written by all four band members and recorded with an unmistakably live energy. Four-part harmonies, sweet strings and a fun-ass groove are the hallmarks of CC RAILROAD's electrifying debut album. Listen in... 'Not only can they play, but CC Railroad can entertain... variety, lyricism, audience mood, and fun are important to these guys. The band alternately employs Spanish rhythms and melodies, bluegrassy finger-picking and toe-tapping pacing, traditional folk-ballad storytelling, and humorous little ditties. It was clear from the cheering, laughing, and clapping, that the audience had just as much fun watching and listening as the band had performing.' ~ Molly Fuhr, Philadelphia Folksong Society 'I was fortunate enough to get my hands on the debut demo from CC Railroad, and if these four songs are any indication, this CD is going to be hot. Featuring both male and female lead vocals, CC Railroad comes across with a 'John Gorka/10,000 Maniacs' - sound all their own... definitely a train worth catching.' - Rocky-O, Liner Notes Magazine CC Railroad is Rich Boniface, Ryder Daniels, Cheryl Prashker, and Carolann Solebello.
