Album Notes

With Kathryn Caine's 8th album, she ventures away from bluegrass and continues to explore the Americana Genre. The Small Band packs a powerful punch of a solid rhythm section of Eddie Hall and Sonny Layne and two of Virginia's finest guitarists, Billy Brockman and Ian Gilliam. This "small band" uplifts Kathryn's powerful yet vulnerable vocals and delivers fine, well crafted songwriting , and down home soul. Having written all songs with the exception of Silver dagger, and a co write on The Whiskey Song with folk artist Peyton Tochterman, Kathryn Caine and the Small Band reflect their love of 70's country and country rock in the vein of Lone Justice, Emmylou, Linda Rondstadt, Nicolette Larson and of course , Kathryn's biggest influence, the incomparable Dolly Parton.

Kathryn Caine has released 8 Americana albums that have been praised for her vocal talent, songwriting ability, musicianship and production quality. With each cd , you hear the influences of gospel, bluegrass, country and Rock n’ Roll. Kathryn Caine is a prolific songwriter and fantastic live performer and an amazing singer. You always hear traces of the high and lonesome in her voice as well as the gritty Gospel . She has played the Birchmere, The Bluebird Cafe, The Paramount and opened for acts Phil Vassar, Marc Chestnutt ,Elizabeth Cook, Web Wilder, Asleep at the Wheel, Indigenous, Derek Trucks, Drivin n Cryin Davis Grisman, played with Darren Nicholson of Balsam Range and most recently Jamey Johnson and Josh Turner .
  Early on, Ian Gilliam was receiving attention from some of the great players of our time.  At age 19, the late Telemaster Danny Gatton offered to collaborate with Ian and produce his first album.  Unfortunately, the project never came to fruition before Gatton's death in 1994.  In the years following, Ian has gained the respect of many of his favorites, including Jimmy Thackery, Tom Principato, who recorded and released one of Gilliam's songs, and honky tonk king, Bill Kirchen.  Billy Brockman grew up in Orange, Va., came of age in the 60's. Bought his first electric guitar after seeing The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show. Played professionally for many years before and after buying Charlottesville Music in '91, with Jawbone, Jimmy O & the Ready Teds, Terry Allard, the Kokomotions (with Eddie Hall), Billy & the Backbeats, and Big Ray & the Kool Kats. Eddie Hall has played in bands with Country Music Hall of famer Jimmy Fortune, Award winning banjo player Sammy Shelor, Fiddle player Ricky Simkins, Grammy winner Dan Tymenski, Nashville session guitar player Rodney Riley,and record producer steel player Tommy Detamore. He has also played in many successful bands from c'ville. Sonny Layne has played bass with Terri Allard, Gary Green, and The Buzzerd Hollow Boys. He easily moves between standup bass and electric and along with Eddie Hall , forms the solid backbone of The Small Band.

Trainwrecked society

Kathryn Caine and The Small Band
When I first dropped down the digitalized and hypothetical needle onto this new record from Kathryn Caine, I found myself wondering just one thing: Why am I only hearing this now? This self titled release with the Small Band is far from her first release as I would come to learn. Caine has stunning audiences with her wonderful Americana meets country meets gritty Gospel infused vocals and songwriting for several years. And although I am only now coming to know this twang laced songstress, it certainly feels as though she has never missed a beat as this is some down home goodness I am so happy to have discovered.
The album features a variation of lyric driven tracks, with guitar work that is reminiscent of some sort of floating dock in a country setting, with checkered tablecloth covered picnic tables spread about, and a feeling of happiness floating in the air. Even when Caine belts out words about running away or crying as she does on “Beatle Song”, it is still so uplifting and powerful that if you know at sort of two step, you may just want to grab a partner and sway your problems as well as the night away. It behooves me to state that I am not usually a fan of most country music. And being quite the moody son of a bitch at times, good time music may not compute. But when it comes to sounds like this, even my grumpy self can’t help but feel uplifted and with a feel of praise for this beautiful life we live in.
Kathryn Caine’s excellence comes mostly from her ability to take old and sometimes tired forms of Americana and country and making them new, fresh, and entirely unique. And this album with the Small Band is about as perfect of an example for how great it can be to bring back the old days, when tears and whiskey and a little foot stomping reigned supreme. For fans of the old days of down home music, you are not likely to find another album as wonderful as this one.
