Album Notes
"The name Utah Carol is taken from a traditional song about a cowboy that dies in the process of saving his friend from a stampede. But in fact, their latest musical offering, Rodeo Queen, sounds like two entwined souls playing music on a city rooftop at night, imagining the patchwork of rooftops is the prairie and the city skyline is a mountain range in the distance. JinJa and Grant's lilting vocal harmonies provide Utah Carol's backbone. The songs are deceptively simple. You'll find yourself humming along, but then a well-placed, unexpected instrument comes along and you listen a little closer: organs ebb and flow, reverbed guitars comment here and there, a vibraphone waltzes in for a spell, synthesizers sparkle and fade, a slide guitar meanders by, a horn section waits for the perfect moment...there is a subtle, lush world inside these urban prairie songs. Lyrically and sonically this is an intimate album; the perfect soundtrack for breaking up, making up, or making out." Matt Dufek, GapersBlock, www.gapersblock.com

Utah Carol's third incredibly beautiful full-length album release, is filled with the duo's signature rich, woven vocal harmonies combined with layered horns, keyboard, slide guitars and orchestral samples. Haunting songs like "The Golden West," "Twilight Time" and "Whisper To Me Sweetly" are perfect companions for an evening at the cabin. "Rodeo Queen" creates an expansive soundtrack for one great, lonesome western where everything is golden or sparkles like the sequins on a cowboy shirt or the stars up in a boney cowboy sky.

Really georgeous (did I spell that right?) Just enough Pop, just enough Twang, and lovely harmonies. Yum! I am pretty stingy with my stars, but this one gets them all! Thank you.
