In this fourth all original recording by the award winning roots music group Kathy Boyd & Phoenix Rising they've thrown all the "rules" out the window and simply done what they do best - take the stories of the world and tell them in a way that allows for a multitude of meanings - depending of the perspective and the experience of the listener.
Although this is a look at the darker side of life, it's done with great spirit and a sense of fun. You'll find wonderful surprises, like the appearance of a resophonic mandolin on a couple of numbers. Dennis Nelson plays a soulful harmonica that's probably "no part of nothing" in many bluegrass circles - but a climb to the gallows just wouldn't be the same without it! And really. . . . . . is that a rattlesnake making a guest appearance at the end of one of the songs????
Everything about the recording was fun, from the songwriting to the recording process - even the photo shoot (which is not generaly the bands favorite part of the proceedings) turned out to be a wonderfully fun day of playing with guns, whiskey bottles and poker hands at the historic MacLeay Inn outside Salem, Oregon.
The feedback from live performances of these new songs has been powerful and amazing. There is something about this music that seems to allow people to express something they have held deep inside for a long time - perhaps too long of a time.
So take a listen, throw your head back and let it out. That's exactly the response that good music should bring out in you. A primal release of emotion that leaves you feeling that somone out there really "gets" you - and understands exactly how you feel - and somehow figured out how to put it into a song.
Laugh, cry, howl and the moon. Tap your toes. Watch out for speeding tickets if listening while driving (ahem. . . . personal band member experience here). Lowground is for you. A gift of appreciation and gratitude for your years of encouragement and support.
Now let's all go get into some mischief together!
