other stringed instruments including 12 string guitar, National

The River Grace"
puts forth a collection of songs effortlessly suited to her voice, mixing
dobro, mandolin, and upright bass with vintage Casio keyboards and subtle
electronic beats. From the joyous declarations of “Before I Go” to the
tragic balladry of “Darkest Day”; The River Grace’s sound is rooted in the
past yet beckons the progression of Americana. Recorded in a small cottage
studio called Forgiveness, efM EDITORS CHOICE >>

Vince Gill. 12 cuts including "Making Hay," "Heads You Win, Tails I
Lose," "The One You Lean On," more.
On The Fly"
latest CD release, On the Fly, showcases many of the styles the band has

including big Child Ballads and some more contemporary songs.

guitar, Tom McCoville's fiddle, Gill Redmond's cello and Najam
Javed's tablas. Can this be the first recording of one of Professor

this to say about The Nu-Look: "I wanted to make a record
like "Disraeli Gears", you know, a power trio album...that's the
approach this band has always taken in our live shows...but i knew i
didn't want to write a bunch of songs that sounded like i wished i
was 25 again..." This is still folk music, get it!
