Junction 109 is singer/songwriter Dan McGrath and production engineer/drummer Mark Hamilton along with a collaboration of musicians from the New England area. Our sound is a blend of Rock, Roots Rock, Blues, Country, Folk, Americana and what ever else we can come up with. Everything from hard driving grooves to laid back acoustic songs. Our main interest is writing, recording and producing our own originals in our home studio referred to as "Caveman Studio" located in central Massachusetts.
