Dailey & Vincent release set for January

Wednesday, November 14, 2007 – New duo Dailey & Vincent are set to release their self-titled debut Jan. 29, 2008 on Rounder. Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent produced the 12-song set featuring traditional bluegrass, country and gospel sounds.

Among the songs on the album are the David Rawlings/Gillian Welch gospel number "By the Mark," "My Savior Walks With Me Today," written by Dailey and former employer Doyle Lawson and "Music of the Mountains," written by Ronnie Bowman, Bob Minner and David Dunkley.

Three songs on the album reflect the influence of the Statler Brothers, particularly tenor Jimmy Fortune. "More Than a Name on a Wall," written by Fortune and John Rimel, was a hit for The Statlers in 1989. Dailey & Vincent performed the song with Fortune last week at the opening ceremony prior to the reading of all the names on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington. Dailey & Vincent also tapped Fortune's song catalog by recording "I Believe." The album closes with "Place on Calvary," a gospel song written by Langdon Reid that features quartet singing. The Statlers recorded the song in 2002 and performed it during their farewell concert.

Dailey previously was with Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver as lead vocalist for nine years. Vincent played with Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, Dolly Parton, and sister Rhonda Vincent. As harmony vocalist and multi-instrumentalist with Skaggs' Kentucky Thunder band for 10 years, Vincent earned five Grammy Awards and eight IBMA Awards for Instrumental Group of the Year. He also earned three Grammy nominations for co-producing Rhonda Vincent's "One Step Ahead," "Ragin' Live" and "All American Bluegrass Girl." Other production credits include Susie Luchsinger's Dove Award-nominated "Count It All Joy," The Cherryholmes's "Bluegrass Vagabonds" and Hunter Berry's "Wow Baby."

CD reviews for Dailey & Vincent

The Sounds Of Christmas CD review - The Sounds Of Christmas
With "The Sounds of Christmas," Dailey & Vincent gift us with an honest-to-goodness country Christmas album. It's tough to find honest-to-goodness country music - let alone Christmas country - but this duo's bluegrass and gospel grounding give their album deep roots. Dolly Parton's big presence on "Road to Bethlehem" adds a sweet touch, even though the new song shares a melody with Bruce Springsteen's "One Step Up." It's one of a few new »»»
Patriots & Poets CD review - Patriots & Poets
From time to time an album comes along with exactly the right message and meaning at exactly the right time - "Patriots & Poets" is one of those albums. Dailey and Vincent initially set out to create a project full of songs they had written independently, together and with close friends. While succeeding mightily in that regard, they also created a beautiful love letter to America and her people in a time when many need to be reminded, that while perhaps flawed, we are all still one. »»»
Brothers of the Highway CD review - Brothers of the Highway
Some six years and counting after their spectacular debut on the bluegrass scene, with a couple of handfuls of IBMA awards garnered along the way, Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent continue to avoid the trap of sputtering out after using up their best material on the first couple of albums. The primary reason is, although they are adept at writing some of their own material (and two of the tracks on this new release, Steel Drivin' Man and Back To Jackson County are nice efforts by Dailey), »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Carlile takes her chances on feeling "Blue" – During a rare moment sitting at the piano and appropriately dressed in blue, Brandi Carlile paraphrased a memorable Joni Mitchell quote. Basically, it went that, if you listen to Joni Mitchell music and only picture Mitchell - but not yourself - something is wrong. While Carlile, who performed Mitchell's "Blue" album in its entirety for... »»»
Concert Review: The Head and the Heart go beyond the nah nahs – "Nah nah," "la la" and "Wee oh" populated a number of songs from The Head and the Heart. Yes, the Seattle-based band does pen a good amount of sing-along songs that were clearly designed that way. And while that style can certainly engage and energize a crowd, there was more to that from the sextet.... »»»
