I have a really hard time with instrumental music. It always leaves me wanting something more. Like there’s something missingâ€¦and in my opinion there is. Usually what moves me about music is the lyrics and the voice singing them. So I really hesitate to “review” instrumental stuff unless it moves me in other ways. I’m sorry to say, this one does not quite do it for me. I am also not a fan of bluegrass, which this sounds like to me (I’m sure someone will write to me and tell me I’m completely wrong, so I’ll emphasize….to ME).
I mention it because even though it’s not really something I would listen to by choice, I can tell that the musicians are very talented. The songs have nice melodies and they’re played well.
Luckily they’re on CD Baby so you can give a little listen and see if it’s right for you.
