CD reviews for Susan Haynes

Susan Haynes
Like many newcomers Susan Haynes emphasizes her vocal talents, and they are considerable. Haynes, a Georgia native, can belt it out, but that's not her strong suit. Haynes shows mettle on the lead-off "Long Way to Memphis," courtesy of Al Anderson and Leslie Satcher, and goes very tender on "Not That Bad."

Trampled by Turtles get wild Trampled By Turtles is an indie folk group, an alt.-country band or a bluegrass act - depending on how you choose to look at them. Perhaps it's best to view the outfit as the ultimate combo platter consisting of just about everything that's good about American music. They play wonderfully, yet they also write intelligent songs that draw everyone from Townes Van Zandt to Nirvana to Ralph Stanley. It's all good, and some (or all) of these influences can be spotted in most of Trampled By Turtles' enjoyable sounds.... »»»
