ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It was 2009 when Kelli Redmond invited James Harrell to a weekly jam she hosted in her living room. He showed up, opened his guitar case and began what turned out to be a once in a lifetime partnership. The pair shared a love for harmony singing and soulful songwriting and soon found they really had something special. They started out playing open mics, then local venues and since 2011 have been touring the Southeast.

Their second album, self titled, “Letters To Abigail” was recorded at the world class Echo Mountain Recording Studios by Grammy nominated sound engineer Julian Dreyer and again pulling from the talent of the region. They called on some of Asheville’s instrumentalist to help out with the album, most notably Grammy Award Winners and members of the band “Steep Canyon Rangers” Mike Guggino (mandolin) and Nicky Sanders (fiddle).

The 10 track recording opens with a toe tapping whimsical song titled (Recipe For a Smile) a song about the simple pleasures in life. As you listen through “Letters To Abigail” you will also hear songs about love and that (1st Kiss). And a story about a woman who finds courage and inspiration in an old charm bracelet, (Rusted Charms) then on to heart beak & confusion (Spinning Round). Midway through the album, the harmony truly shines through on (Take Me Away) written by John Evans and Adam Carroll, made famous by Hayes Carll. The second half of the CD you will be taken on a journey (My Only Friend) through the memories of a young man coming of age and returning to his once happy childhood home and the realization that change, loneliness and death are also a part of living. Adding the old time feel, somewhat of a “murder ballad” the blade wielding (Where Did I Go Wrong) certainly brings a traditional flavor to the record. And on a more contemporary note, the self explanatory track, (Homesick) will remind you of how good it feels to belong. Rounding out this eclectic collection of musical storytelling is the small town anthem made famous by Hal Ketchum, (Small Town Saturday Night).
