... and 1/2 ..... Inspired acoustic folk-grass collection of well-written origin
“Try Love” is the sixth CD from John and Michele Laws, an Ontario-based duo that marks a decade on the road as a hard-working couple that sing and play acoustic guitar and electric bass, respectively. Self-described as a “grassy folk duo,” their arrangements emphasize tight harmony while downplaying the understated banjo and mandolin contributions of J.P. Cormier (who also provides harmony vocals, keyboards, percussion and acoustic guitar). Banjo and mandolin make their most prominent appearances in “Same Rain,” a song about the difficulty of separation, along with the one cover, a bluegrassy version of Gordon Lightfoot’s “Wherefore and Why.” The original instrumental, “Beer Mountain Rag,” also has a rollicking bluegrass groove that also features a bass break from Michele.

The Laws’ originals comprise ten of the eleven cuts, and each track presents a different twist on that universal topic that “just might be the answer to everything…give it a try.” The title cut appears at track three with John’s lead vocals encouraging us to not only try love, but also try hope, conviction, a positive prediction, and believing in the power up above. In “Walking Away,“ Michele’s lead vocals exhibit a conflicted feeling of whether to find the way back to one’s partner or just keep on walking away. The swinging “Who’s Keeping Score” provides nice variety on a project that’s largely reflective singer-songwriter material.

While clearly having some bluegrass influences, The Laws’ “Try Love” is predominately an inspired acoustic folk-grass collection of well-written originals that show why this harmonious duo is building a legion of fans. At one time they fronted a bluegrass band called “One Track Mind,” and that served them well to build their reputation for solid picking and singing and recognition as “the best duo out of Canada since Ian and Sylvia.”
The Laws won the 2007 Chris Austin Songwriting contest, and they’ve secured a songwriting deal in Nashville. Besides cooking up a storm with their music, they’ve got other culinary skills. They’ve published a cookbook, and another will be printed in the spring of 2011. Whether you’re looking for a good recipe or a tasty new song, “Try Love” just might be the answer. (Joe Ross)
