Annie Bosko (Stoney Creek, 2024)

Reviewed by Dan MacIntosh

Annie Bosko starts out a little quiet on her five-song EP, but revs up to a rollicking ride down the "Honky Tonk Highway" to close it out. This project may represent a brief trip, but she sure makes for one fun travel partner.

Bosko is a fine singer that surrounds herself with undeniably country instrumentation. For instance, out front fiddle spars with the twangy electric guitar on the aforementioned "Honky Tonk Highway." It's a fun song that will sound fantastic on any road trip. Steel guitar colors the release's country lovin' inclusion, "Neon Baby," which finds Bosko sounding sweet while making sure to include "Haggard and Jones" on this romantic evening's playlist. There's more fiddle running through "Boots On," which is how Shania Twain might sound if she focused more on creating real country. "He Gone" is the only weak song in this quintet of tunes. It's a breakup song with nothing special going for it.

With four winners out of five, though, Annie Bosko gets the percentages nearly perfect. She mentioned in concert recently that both Dwight Yoakam and Vince Gill have recorded with her, which suggests Bosko music – while fantastic now – might even get better in the near future. Yee-haw!
