Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Her follow up CD release to Bootleggers Daughter and what a fine follow up it is! This go around she is backed up by her friend Zak Borden on mandolin. And as an added surprise she even pulls in Pieta Brown for some backup vocals. Six of the cuts are her personal compositions which is something I personally like to see in new and upcoming artists. I do like her cover of “Ode To Billy Joe” There is not one bad cut; it’s the perfect CD for relaxing and unwinding. This is a wonderful blue grass CD that might be worthy of adding to the Jammy nominations list. I’m fairly confident this artist is going to be a big break through very soon. If you're the only one that knows you're afraid, you're brave. BG
