article imageReview: Nu-Blu beautiful on new bluegrass album 'Vagabonds' Special

By Markos Papadatos     Apr 28, 2017 in Music
Bluegrass band Nu-Blu released their highly-anticipated new studio album, "Vagabonds," independently, which came out today.
It opens with the upbeat story tune "The Bridges That You've Burned," and it is followed by the gorgeous acoustic ballad "A Lot More Love," which features Carolyn Routh's gentle vocals. They pick up the pace with the fun track "Still Small Voice."
Equally haunting is the ballad "640 Battlefield Drive," while "How Many Rivers" is a polished, mid-tempo tune, which features neat fiddle instrumentation. It is followed by the spitfire "Troublemaker," while "Gypsies on Parade" is yet another delicate performance by Carolyn. They show their sassy side on "A Fool and Her Heart," and "Surround Me with Love" is a crisp and tender vocal. It closes with a distinct cover of "Good Hearted Woman," where they do Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson justice, as well as the inspirational "Knockin' on Heaven's Door."
Aside from Carolyn Routh, Nu-Blu is made up of Daniel Routh, TJ Honaker and Clint White.
The Verdict
Overall, the new bluegrass album by Nu-Blu is beautiful and refreshing. There is a lot of variety on this musical effort, and it garners an A rating. Well done.
Vagabonds is available on iTunes.
