Album Notes
"Crystalline harmonies and mournful tunes..." -The Boston Globe

The Sisters' classic lonesome sound. Debra Clifford's laser high harmony holding tight to Sarah Hawker's lush lead vocals combine for another vivid and spine-tinging listening experience. Clawhammer & gourd banjo, tenor guitar and harmonium, and Debra's signature Jumbo Gibson Guitar to guide the way. Original songs and classic old time mountain music of hope, love and the human spirit blend seamlessly throughout.

Joann Samson

Was so excited to get notice of this CD being out, love the harmony singing and the songwriting is great on this CD. Thank you again for more music.


I can't buy this cd here,
I'm a great fan of the Lonesome Sisters.. I have the 3 cd 's bevore DEEP WATER.
But this cd I can't buy them in the Neterlands.


So beautiful!
Love all their music. On this new CD, they've never sounded better. Incredible original compositions, and amazing treatments of traditional mountain tunes. Harmony singing doesn't come any better than this. You need this CD!


I've been waiting for this, so excited to hear more from these girls. Love title cut Deep Water, love it all....thanks Sarah & Debra.

Beautiful Sounds Here.
Thrilled they came out with more music, have been a Lonesome Sisters fan since way back when they first started out. Deep Water is more beautiful work by them. Highly recommended.


It's awesome
I loved their music the minute I heard it on Pandora. So excited to see they have a new CD. Deep Water is my favorite cut, but the whole album is great. Lots of banjo on this one.
