Album Notes
Twelve new songs from award-winning roots-country artist John Lilly. Accompanying himself on acoustic guitar and mandolin, this solo studio recording captures the live sound of a John Lilly concert or solo performance. A prolific writer, John writes songs that evoke memories of early country music while remaining firmly rooted in the present day. His humorous song "She Talks to Me (GPS Song)," for example, examines the strange relationship between a lonely traveling man and his navigation device. "They Tore the Cabin Down" appears on the surface to possibly be a long-lost Carter Family classic, but is in reality a lament about Mountaintop Removal coal mining.

"Back to Dear Old Ireland," "Angel's Share" and "So Low" reveal John's deep roots in traditional folk music, while "Do What You Do Best," "How'd You Steal My Heart?" and "Thinking About the Weather" reflect classic country music themes and melodies. Songs of living, loving, losing and laughing written and performed by one of West Virginia's best-loved performing songwriters.

Another musical treat - traditionally flavored songs about things we all know
Once more John Lilly takes the personal and makes it universal, while drawing on the deep strands of country, folk and Americana music to convey the message. Musically the album is a nice blend of upbeat rhythmic songs like "They Tore the Cabin Down" and "How'd YouAnd the little Steal My Heart" while the slower numbers "I Will Care for You" and "So Low" are tender wistful numbers. As usual, John does not disappoint with the humorous " And She Talks to Me (The GPS Song)" and "The Angels' Share" about whiskey fumes drifting up to heaven. And the tasty little Irish jig that ends "Back to Dear Old Ireland" is a treat for fans of virtuoso mandolin picking. A very enjoyable outing from one of our finest traditional musicians, who brings the past to bear on the present in such a satisfying way. Can't wait for more from this talented artist.
