Tim Gearan and guitarist Russell Chudnofsky perform "Money for the Train " from his new album Riverboat.


BOSTON — Steve Almond says Gearan is "poised to break out nationally" with his new album Riverboat, and likens Gearan's style to that of Randy Newman, The Band and Credence Clearwater Revival. "He's that good," Almond declared.

"I had pretty hip parents," Gearan said of his musical education and his early exposure to a wide variety of singer-songwriters' records from the 1960s and '70s.

You can catch Gearan for his live release of the new album this week at Atwood's Tavern in Cambridge.
