Product Notes

'They look like a bluegrass band- there's a banjo, fiddle, dobro and other trappings- but you won't find any songs about mama or whiskey. There's no twang in Kate Lamont's soulful vocals and Doug Sauter's guitar and banjo playing is certainly the result of some Bela Fleck/Michael Hedges gene merge. His instrumentation is as complex as the most intricate jazz but far more accessible and melodic. Lamont's poetic lyrics paint stirring images in songs like 'Stars for the Sun,' a number that also includes dreamy multi-part harmonies and Sauter's amazing banjo work. There's an eerie feeling in the lyrics of the title cut, a tune in 6/8 that features banjo, cello and Lamont's evocative vocals. Banjo and cello? I swear, I am not making this up and yes, it's astoundingly beautiful. 'Keep My Memory' features a percussive guitar in an open tuning with a tasty acoustic bass pining it down. A couple of the songs do have a more standard bluegrass arrangement, including 'All My Life' about making life choices: 'Logan' is a lively piece about a nice guy. I would have liked lyrics in the liner notes but it's a small complaint. Production so clean it leaps out of the stereo. Who are they? A bluegrass October Project? A jazzed up Alison Krauss and Union Station? I give up. Just go buy this CD!' - Sing Out Magazine.
