    Serlin Greaves - Two longtime musical friends are back with honest songs to sell

    Serlin Greaves - Two longtime musical friends are back with honest songs to sell

    Joey Serlin and Daniel Greaves are one half of The Watchmen and 100 percent of the new duo Serlin Greaves. Both guys felt they had fresh songs in them and it spiraled into a brand new album called Sad Songs For Sale. I've heard the album already and I honestly think it's some of the best work they've done to date. It's beyond catchy but non-repetitive with various changes of pace and arrangements. We get into the origins of this new project and walk through each track individually. This is as up close and personal as I've ever seen these two so if you're a fan you'll really enjoy this one. If you're not already, then you will be. Enjoy!
