Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

SILVEROOT

BIG DIFFERENCE

2009-08-11

Multi instrumentalists Patrick Flynn and Darryl Webb have spent most of their lives in the wine country of Northern California and make up the core sound of Silveroot. This is acoustic folk music that has the wit of a Robert Earl Keen and at times the sounds of the gypsy song man Jerry Jeff Walker. Emily Palen a Michigan native that now resides in the San Francisco area nicely rounds out their sound with her excellent violin and vocals on one of my favorite tracks “Brazil”. This track has the most adventurous sound on the disc and reminded me of the 1960’s group It’s a Beautiful Day. Silveroot has delivered a fine release that should make a Big Difference in the world of acoustic folk music. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
