Before
pressing play on this one, I had to take a little look at the webpage. You see,
as I downloaded it and opened up the album the only word that stuck out wasn’t
the title of the album or any of the songs. It was the word bluegrass. The only
bluegrass band I ever saw was a band I witnessed play at a campground when I
was sixteen. I don’t particularly hate or like it, because I have no preconceived
notions of what it should sound like. Just looking down through the instruments
on the album really grabbed my attention; there was a mandolin, fiddles, bass,
and a resophonic guitar. The last one I had to ‘google’ but when the pictures
appeared I’d seen it before.

            Crossfire
opens it up. I thought I had heard it all. But, I don’t believe you could find
another musician on the planet whose jaw wouldn’t drop, feel water-boarded by
their own drool, and sputter the word, “Wow,” to keep from drowning in it.

            Ashley’s
Reef
brings in a strong fiddle that just accentuates the mandolin. I can
see why this is called bluegrass. It seems to mentally place you deep in the
mountains, or way back into the so called Bible Belt.

            Good
at Losing You
adds some vocals to that mandolin and fiddle, and give me
that urge to grab a bottle of Kentucky Straight Bourbon. Then Land Rush Cory Piatt starts up and seems
to be on that westward wagon train hauling the family’s belongings at record
speed to grab that plot.

            Poor
Boy
is another song with vocals that seem a lesson learned and some
necessary advice. Ride the Wild Turkey reminds
me of those few times as a youth racing with that particular bottle. I hope he
didn’t actually try to ride a real one preparing for Thanksgiving. Sad Songs seems a bright change for me
after all the sad songs that I’ve heard. It seems that a lot of the time that’s
all that I hear. I’m pretty sure now I can hear that resophonic guitar.

            Continuing on, there’s not much more
I can say. This musician is still in his teens it’s absolutely remarkable. This
album with all that masterful finger picking, the amazing fiddle, the poetic
lyrics, and that indistinguishable resophonic guitar, not only leaves me
saying, “Wow,” but also, “F***ing unbelievable!”
