Album Notes
The stories on this album take place mostly around the early nineteen hundreds. The tales they tell are based on truth... sweet family history, macabre tales of grizzly death, an account of a trip in a model T Ford. There is Dwain Story's "Wendigo," an Algonquin legend based on an Algernon Blackwood essay. The styles range from white gospel, to a taste of bluegrass (supported by Paul Craft's "Raised by the Railroad Line,) and a charleston, not to overlook the overtly undefinable styles that are the hallmark of this artist's music. The instrumentation is sparce, designated almost exclusively to acoustic guitar bolstered by co-writer, Daniel Pagdon's melodic contrabass, along with occasional comments from mandolin, and a fancy featured trumpet solo. Finley's versatile voice whines, whispers, and soars. Her guitar, true to the album title, is relentless in rhythmic drive, all the while changing in groove from song to song. The bonus track breaks away from the strumming guitar by featuring a free form single piano track to support a delicate, poignant vocal which proves to be a surprising deviation from the oft performed "Londonderry Air." If you savored the dark furnishings of "Hauntress," or were warmed by the winter fireside glow from "Solstice," you will find "Girl on the Rhythm Guitar" to be a fresh new color on the pallet for Finley's musical creations.
