CD reviews for Shovels and Rope

Little Seeds CD review - Little Seeds
Shovels & Rope have made quite an imprint in wider circles since receiving honors as best new band from the Americana Music Association for their formal debut "O' Be Joyful" in 2013. Not content to rest on those kudos, the duo - multi-instrumentalists Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent, who are husband and wife - showed their determination to move forward beyond the rustic regimen they established early on. Two more albums - "Swimmn' Time" and a covers collection, »»»
Busted Jukebox Vol. 1 CD review - Busted Jukebox Vol. 1
Leave it to Americana duo Shovels and Rope to release one of the better albums of the second half of 2015! And all with the help of some classic tunes and a bevy of friends to help them out. It ends up being an extremely fun, breezy romp through songs that shouldn't sound as perky as they do. Yet after the initial moments of Neil Young's "Unknown Legend" with Shakey Graves assisting them, the listener gets the sense they've fallen into something well worth repeated listens. »»»
O' Be Joyful
Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst, the South Carolina duo that refer to themselves somewhat obliquely as Shovels and Rope, make a decidedly assertive impression with "O' Be Joyful," their first foray on an actual record label and first effort to gain noticeable acclaim. Relying on no more than a pair of guitars, rudimentary percussion, harp and only an occasional keyboard, they create a vivid down home impression that incorporates elements of folk, country, bluegrass, primal rock »»»
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 goes from excellent to memorable musical event – The last time Brandi Carlile came through town, she was promoting 2018's "By the Way, I Forgive You," which would deservedly go on to win the 2019 Grammy Award for Best Americana Album. This time out, Carlile performed fewer songs from that strong effort, which amounted to a more well-rounded live overview of her career to date.... »»»
Concert Review: Tuttle does well by coming home – Molly Tuttle has won kudos for her acoustic guitar playing. So much so that she's captured the IBMA award for Guitarist of the Year, the first female to win that acclaim from the bluegrass organization. But it's not so much Tuttle's guitar playing that stood out live. Yes, that serves her well for sure. But it's more that her... »»»
