The second album by the Jenni Dale Lord Band features a metric ton of talent. The sheer musicianship is genuinely impressive, from the rock-solid full-time members to the collective genius of the guests. It's so polished and professional that every song should be on the radio. The arrangements are just as simple or as complex as they need to be to suit each song style perfectly. The songwriting itself is, as always, infused with gentleness, playfulness, sensuality, and genuine soulfulness. Your performance is as good as any of your live shows, which is saying a lot because every show I've seen has been a memorable experience. Individually, each song represents the great diversity in Americana, and collectively the album defines the genre.
