Album Review: Annie Ford Band

We recently received a link from HearthPR to download the self titled debut CD from Annie Ford Band.  Ms. Ford currently resides in Seattle, but her early roots are in rural Virginia and this release encapsulates some of the traditions of old time music. But it is also a classic country sound with bits of pedal steel and rhythm guitar as well as some bluesy notes in some tunes. Ford's vocals are soothing and rhythmic; clean yet powerful. They are balanced with a talented set of musicians, including Ford on the fiddle, that support and integrate the vocals but do not overshadow. The CD is available at Bandcamp and the rhythmic, sultry Buick 1966 is available as part of the Trail Mix January 2014 from Blue Ridge Outdoors. Pair with Seattle's Pike Brewing Company -  a music friendly venue. Cheers.
