Jennifer Mascia has written a memoir about unwittingly growing up as the daughter of a Mafia contractor. Her book is titled “Never Tell Our Business to Strangers.” Then, the genesis for Angela Easterling’s new album, BlackTop Road, can be traced to 1791, the year her mother’s family started their farm in Greer, SC that eventually was cut by a road that now bears their name. After writing the songs for the CD, Easterling only had one producer in mind. Will Kimbrough says, “I produced Angela Easterling’s record, but all I had to do is show up for class and play along. She is a powerful, focused artist who has done her homework.”
