ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Drone, the new album by Asheville’s The Leigh Glass Band, is anything but drone. Glass cuts an apt figure as a front woman, approaching her material with all the energy and vocal strength of local funk songstress Laura Reed. Glass’ sound is reminiscent of Alannah Myles (she of “Black Velvet” fame) but updated for 2010; approachable as Carrie Underwood — only without the cutesy trappings.

Lead track “Resurrection” opens with an achingly lovely guitar riff. The richness of the music begs to be listened to through headphones for maximum effect — everything from tasteful percussion to nimble, steady bass is perfectly balanced. Glass makes the most of her dusky voice on “Radio,” a slow and sweetly nostalgic number that would be at home in an Ashley Judd film. “Mr. Thunderjeans” demands attention, first for the clicking, jazzy percussion, then for the “doo-wop-wop” backup vocal and Glass’s sassy lyrics: “Straw hat, clam diggers, bare feet in the sand. After fishing in Bermuda he made moonlight with his hands.”

While The Drone gives a first impression of a polished country album, in truth there are myriad complexities, from some fierce harmonica on “Ivy Curtain” to some deliciously spooky production on “Indigo Night.” Backed by a trio of sought-after musicians (Bryan White on bass, Patrick Wells on drums and Rich Hendrix on guitar), Glass also enlisted other area artists for the recording. Listen for the contributions of Joshua Singleton, Laura Blackley, Peggy Ratusz, Andrea Ward, Dwayne Dodson, Robert DiMaio and Jeff Zentner.
