High Res – new Album Covers

“For a singer/songwriter, Donna Hughes is blissfully free of the maudlin confessional obsession that usually suffocates the genre. She sings a song as if it were the most natural thing in the world. Because of this, the listener can be deceived by their simplicity. Take a song like “Jesse,” for example. It is a solid song that rolls along, incorporating one rhythm with another (sometimes silent) internal rhythm, as it tells the tale of an act of violence that perfectly fits the song’s key. The entire event (rhythm, key, instrumentation, lyric, vocals, harmonies) all blend seamlessly to present a singular emotional experience. If the emotion is pure and simple – so much the better. It’s always pleasing to hear a bluegrass singer not afraid to let the vocals blend with the other musical instruments.” Read the entire review at Parcbench

“What I’m listening to is some of the best vocal bluegrass available, I am sure, and what I would expect out of a Crowe-backed project. Hughes lays out fifteen exceptional originals (one co-written with Keesy Timmer) which would have been worthy of any of my favorite bluegrass bands— Seldom Scene, Hot Rize, and Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver included. The harmonies are beautifully done, the band tight as hell (the list of players is a who’s who of musicians I would drive miles to see) and the production superb. As for Hughes’ vocals, all I can say is, I’m in love.” – Indie Musicology
