Eden's Edge combines fresh, contemporary vocals with a heavy dose of mandolin and banjo. The Arkansas trio - lead vocalist Hannah Blaylock; harmony vocals, guitar and Dobro player Dean Berner and harmony singer, mandolin, banjo and guitar player Cherrill Green - released a 10-song debut, but those who purchased it from Cracker Barrel Old Country Store receive 3 bonus tunes, which actually happen to be among the best. There's the rollicking Roots
where Blaylock talks about enjoying rock and roll, but claims country as her true vocal home. While Roots
shows the band's instrumental talents, another bonus track - Wherever I Go
captures Green's excellent lead vocals.
The trio's first single was Amen, which sets the uptempo style of similarly energetic songs like Swingin' Door and the latest single, Too Good To Be True
Ballads like Last Supper about the likely ending of a relationship and Liar show plenty of strong vocals and lyrics. Green's a capella approach to Christ Alone is one of the highlights, given that you don't hear much a capella in country music these days.
