Too Worn To Mend

American Beauties full-length debut album “Too Worn To Mend” is available digitally and on CD at cdbaby, or you can stream the record on our “Music” page.

The Band

American Beauties is an original indie folkrock band from Boston, Massachusetts.  The music is reminiscent of the LA, San Francisco, and East Coast folkrock bands of the late 1960s and early 1970s and mixes both contemporary and roots influences.  The band performs live at local clubs and festivals in the Boston area and indie festivals around the Northeast.   The band’s been compared to artist’s such as CSNY and The Jayhawks and conveys the radio-friendly qualities of folk, rock, and pop that these bands are well-known for.


Here’s a link to a Live Recording for public radio broadcast performed for Studio Session Live in November 2015.  This recording includes the acoustic band with Chuck Vath on bass and vocals, Evan Harriman on piano, Amber Casares on vocals and Michael Gray on guitar, vocals, and harmonica.
