Another one of these short round-up posts of songs/albums that I’ve fallen in love with during the early parts of 2019. This time we shall visit a creek, a canyon and two mountains.
Tiffany Williams is a songwriter from eastern Kentucky who currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee. She released her timeless and beautiful debut EP When You Go on the 18th of January. Every song has become a friend, but the song that I hold really close to my chest is this one called Big Enough To Be A Mountain.
Charles Wesley Godwin is an americana songwriter from West Virginia and his new album Seneca came out on the 15th of February. According to him it’s an autobiography of an Appalachian boy. It’s a damn impressive one too and full of fabulous songwriting. He really engaged me into this story Seneca Creek with the very first lines and then softly carried me through the captivating song. A great song from a great album.
Moving on Toronto, Canada for the new Abigail Lapell album Getaway that came out on the 1st of February on Coax Records. It’s quite comforting to get lost in the ethereal beauty of this mesmerizing folk album. A highly recommended activity after a tough day at the factory. This song Shape Of A Mountain is a perfect ending to this enchanting getaway from the everyday.
And last station tonight is Dallas, Texas and Joshua Ray Walker’s brilliant debut album Wish You Were Here that came out on State Fair Records on the 25th of January. I posted a live version of Canyon late last year, but I still haven’t posted the official music video for this honest and powerful song. This is a crime against good music, so it’s time to make amends. Oh and even though I keep on raving about Canyon, this song is just one part of the JRW story. The whole new record is impressive from first note to last.
