Shane Firek of Michigan has recorded a solo EP of original acoustic folk songs called 'Within The Silent End' under his project called The Ferdy Mayne. The Ferdy Mayne have released two full-band, non-acoustic albums in '09 and '13.
The only equipment used for this EP were a couple SM57s (mics) a Taylor and some wine, recorded this winter over the new year. Firek sites some of his influences as Neil Young, Gram Parsons and Cat Power. The cover is a picture of his father who played for the Cincinnati Reds. Firek now resides in NYC and will be releasing more material shortly.
