Former eastmountainsouth member moves slowly
Monday, November 22, 2010
– Don't accuse former eastmountainsouth member Kat Maslich-Bode of moving too fast.
It's been six years for the Nashville-based singer/songwriter to complete her solo debut, "The Road of 6," since parting in 2004 with Peter Bradley Adams.
The album, due Jan. 18, 2011 via Mishara Music, is produced by Neilson Hubbard (Kim Richey, Matthew Perryman Jones).
"This recording was a labor of love and literally almost six years in the making," Maslich-Bode said. "I am truly blessed to have so many amazing friends, musicians and singers join me on the record."
"The Road of 6" features six songs beginning with the personal March featuring guest vocals by Mary Chapin Carpenter. She covers Tim Easton's JPMFYF from his 2006 album "Ammunition." "It's considered by some to be a controversial song. But, in my opinion, I think the message is positive and moving."

Its expressions range from the longing sung about on "Too Soon," to a cover of Stephen Foster's always timely "Hard Times." Kat Maslich takes the lion's share of the vocals here, but Peter Adams is also an equally compelling singer. »»»

When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music
John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
