American Made is BoDeans’ most personal, ambitious album to date. In addition to eleven original songs, the album also features a deeply felt cover of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘I’m on Fire.’ Producer John Alagia helped bring grit and groove to Neumann’s exploration of the joys and frustrations of growing up in working-class Wisconsin.
Austin radio station KUT says, ‘The record is certainly of its time. Lyrics touch on the current crossroads that America faces, but the members still know how to make it sound timeless. After nearly three decades in the business, BoDeans have obtained the kind of workmanlike precision that they sing about in their blue-collar songs.’
