Melody Walker - Gold Rush Goddess
Melody Walker is a singer-songwriter out of the Bay Area and I have to tell you that I love this record. I've been playing it quite a bit and continually find something new to like. Great vocals, strong bluegrass-Americana playing and great songs. "Gold Rush Goddess" is a little sultry, "Family Band" is a great tune that features The Buck Walters (Humboldt County, CA). Jacob Groopman is all over the record with some very strong playing but the highlight here is Ms. Walker's vocals.
A nice California twist on the Americana sound. You can grab it on her website as a pay what you want release. Pay something folks 'cause this is a good one. It's gets the OldRockr1 Seal of Approval for sure.
