“It comes from people who seem to have more space and time in their lives. It is closer to the rhythms and sounds of the earth. Voice, banjo, bass, fiddle and percussion all weave around each other in space and time. It suggests an ongoing journey through an ever-changing boundless landscape. It is part of the world's landscape. Forget "Americana," "Western," etc. This music doesn't belong in a box. It is the world's music. Let the world hear it.”

Three hats hang on a rack, an odd assortment: two well used and one newly creased. As individuals, the hats come from different musical worlds but live close to one another, which makes up for a lot. Their songs are original, influenced by a wide swath of musical traditions from Caribbean to the ranges of the American West with subtle grace notes from the depths of jazz, blues and classical styling

The sweetness of the harmony and beauty of the tracks made me have to purchase this album. The vocals float like ethereal sprites with compelling warmness yet a certain captivating sadness as well. This is what Americana should sound like... this is what country should sound like... for it's so real and emotionally delivered... yet absolutely gorgeous. theexplodingogre
