Hussey and Eddy have brought to the table a huge plus for the Americana genre with this new album and it’s sure to bring rave reviews. This phenomenal listening pleasure will intoxicate you with a flood of rich and exciting emotions.
“The Miller Girl” is a unique blend of country, bluegrass and true deep roots Americana music. With high energy drums and foot tapping banjo infused with a shot of raw and gritty vocals it’s a winner from the first track. This single is set to be released on November 8th. Watch for it. Your gonna love it.
The first track on the album is “Little Shove” and it’s a heavy hitter. The song and the album is a real life story. It speaks of heartache, loss and love and takes you through the loss all the way back to recovering a passionate heart.
Both Eddy and Hussey hail from the majestic West Virginia. The goal for this collection is authenticity and truth, to their love of music and to the metamorphosis of human love.
With a release date for the complete album on November 22, 2016 fans are sure to grab this one off the shelves fast. Instrumentation of this album is exceptional. Steve Hussey shares his expertise on acoustic guitar, guitarlele, ukelele and vocals. Jake Eddy excites us with his talents on Upright bass, dobro, mandolin, ukelele, banjo, acoustic guitars and vocals. Both musicians extremely talented in his own right.
“Into The Ether” opens with strong acoustic guitars and a mild banjo. Vocals are tight and crisp. Harmonies are pure and bring you into the song making you want to sing along. I loved the line…”Drive me down to the county line”, brought back memories of childhood days with open fields and free love when life was filled with laughter and happiness and stress free. Outstanding work on this song.
Great Americana music is born not just thrown together. It is created from a spark of intuition and “Chalk It Up” is a song created exactly from that. Up beat tempo with a mesmerizing story to tell of a thirst for love. It’s about facing your darkest fears and asking where do we go, what do we want? All we really want is love. Super kudos to the guys on this one. Excellent.
“Long List of Goodbyes” is bright with bluegrass swing. Banjo’s and brush strokes on a superb drumming beat. “Master Your Mind” brings up the rear of this album with a deep soulful groove and sensual vocals. Loved the raspy inflection on the vocals as it jump starts with true bluegrass and country groove.
Steve Hussey and Jake Eddy are a duo to watch for 2017. This CD will hit the airwaves flying high. The album took just over 2 and a half years to complete in Husseys own Merf Records studio. Cameron Rochte of Red Ridge Entertainment in Nashville TN assisted with some overdubs on a few instruments. The album was produced by Steve Hussey and Cameron Rochte. All songs written by Steve Hussey.
Jake Eddy is known by some as a 16 year old prodigy and as partner to Hussey it’s easy to see how this album is possibly one of the best Americana albums of the year.
This album is pure gold. With the perfect blend of country and bluegrass it is a shot of adrenaline in the heart of Americana soul.
