Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

CAHALEN MORRISON & ELI WEST

THE HOLY COMING OF THE STORM

2011-03-15

Seattle based multi-instrumentalists Chalen Morrison and Eli West perform old time Americana bluegrass music as it was done many decades before, but keep the sound fresh for fans of this genre both old and new. Their sound can be compared to the fantastic soundtrack found within " O Brother Where Art Thou" and it will be easy to compare the vocals on this disc to Dan Tyminski one of the original Soggy Bottom Boys and long time member of Union Station with Allison Krauss. The only problem I found with this disc was I kept looking for "The Holy Coming Of The Storm" the energy never developed past a gentle wind to blow the dust from the mountain. That being said if you are sitting by the fire enjoying a beautiful evening this may be the perfect listen. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
