"... captivating no-frills folk tunes for pop fans who've got the blues ... with Madisen's howling tenor a goose bump-inducing quiver and Mama Bear Ruth's walking guitar lines reminiscent of Willie Nelson's casual pickin' style."
- Rolling Stone

Skeleton Crew is the debut album from Kansas City country band Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear, a mother-and-son act comprising Madisen Ward and his mother Ruth. Produced in Nashville by Grammy winner Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Adele), Skeleton Crew captures the Wards in their most natural setting: the two recorded most of the tracks live, sitting across from one another in the recording studio. With help from a handful of session musicians, they recreate the sound they’d been making since their early days playing coffee shops: a mix of folk, rock and driving roots music that nods to the past while still pushing forward.

"There's so many talented people in the world (that) there's got to be a mom playing with her son somewhere and they're probably amazing. We really didn't set out to be a duo ... we started to realize that other people we were playing with wasn't quite what we wanted to do and a lot more original songs started coming into form. We finally just stopped doing our own thing, set our egos aside and said, 'Let's just go ahead and make this a duo and really try and pursue it head on.' But we were reluctant ... my mom was saying she was too cool for me."

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
