Luanne Hunt makes her home in Hesperia,
California.  She’s a friend of Joni Morris who came to the largest and
longest running old-time rural music festival in America (2016 dates,
LeMars, Iowa, Aug 29-Sept 4) to collect a “CD of the Year” award from
the Rural Roots Music Commission.  Joni told Luanne to submit her CD to
me, and I’m glad she did. Here’s a very down-to-earth lady singer who
really ‘feels’ what she sings.  At first I wondered why she did the song
“Bluer Than The Bluegrass” without a banjo, and then when you listen to
the song, it’s not about bluegrass at all.  It’s about blue grass.  You
know the grass that grows in Kentucky.  It’s a really nicely written
song too, and has already gained some prominence for Luanne.  I really
like the way she used the fiddle in this session.  It added a very nice
‘touch’ to what many would call ‘real’ country music.  There’s an
interesting ‘steel’ sound too.  Also, she wrote three of the songs, and
they are all nicely done. Luanne has already experienced the ups and
downs of the ‘door closed’ music business.  This young lady has an
exceptional voice, an incredibly nice way of recording, and certainly
needs (and has earned) more exposure than she is currently getting. 
Wake up California, this ‘gem’ is on your back door step.  One other
thing I like about Luanne’s music, she isn’t ‘pushing’ anywhere, she
doesn’t need to.  I could put Luanne on the back patio, enjoy a lovely
dinner with my wife, drink a couple of California wines, and listen
quite pleased to Luanne Hunt.  What a pleasant experience that would
be.  The total session, I’m assuming there were not musician changes,
has a nice feel about it.  There’s even a lovely flute sound in “The
Last of the Brave Ones.” Very nicely done.  This is another CD I shall
pass along to the Rural Roots Music Commission.  When Joni Morris was at
the festival where the ceremonies was held, she was on with Anita
Bryant.  No telling who all will be there this year.
