On August 25, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver released their brand new studio album "Life is a Story," via the Mountain Home Music Company.
The CD opens with the relevant "Kids These Days," which has a youthful vibe to it, coupled with neat mandolin instrumentation. It is followed by the soothing "Little Girl," which features soaring harmonies from the group. They kick up the pace with the upbeat "Life Of A Hard Workin' Man" and equally charming is the nostalgic "Life To My Days."
After the mid-tempo "I See A Heartbreak Comin'," and he really tugs at the heart on the poignant ballad "Guitar Case." Equally exceptional is the fiddle-driven "Bluegrass Blues," and they pick up the pace with the up-tempo "Derailed," as they showcase their instrumental prowess.
The eclectic album closes with the melancholic "Cry Across Kansas" and the upbeat "Drivin' It Home."
The Verdict
Overall, Doyle Lawson has one of the most soothing voices in bluegrass. This new album is a gem, comprised of real songs with real stories! It is proof that his induction into the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame was based on sheer merit. It garners an A rating.
Their new album, Life is a Story, is available on Amazon.
