Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Old-time country music just doesn't get much younger than this, though the Peasall Sisters have practically become seasoned veterans over the five years since their childhood breakthrough on the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack. Sarah (now 18), Hannah (14), and Leah (12) may belong to a generation that has never known life without computers and cell phones, but they channel the inspiration of the Carter Family and conjure an era when some rural fans of the music didn't even have indoor plumbing. Though the results sometimes fail to distinguish between the timeless and the cloyingly quaint (the world hardly needs another version of the traditional "Angel Band" or A.P. Carter's "I Never Will Marry," especially renditions this mawkish), the spiritual material that opens and closes--the title track and the a cappella "Where No One Stands Alone"--finds the trio in truly transcendent harmony. It bodes well that what is arguably the best track here, "Gray County Line," is one of the album's three originals, while the production by John Carter Cash shows good ears as well as strong bloodlines. --Don McLeese

Product Description

Over the past five years, the Peasall Sisters, Sarah, 18; Hannah, 14; and Leah, 12; have earned GRAMMY and CMA Awards for their part in the blockbuster O Brother, Where Art Thou? movie and soundtrack, and performed at such esteemed venues as Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall with the acclaimed Down From the Mountain tour, in addition to the Grand Ole Opry. These are teenagers with nearly a decade of musical experience; thoroughly modern kids completely at home with songs many times older than themselves; three individuals with distinct personalities who slide together in instinctual, natural harmony. Add it all together, and it sounds like home. Dual Tone. 2005.

By J. Ross
Format:Audio CD
Playing Time - 40:27 -- Tennessee's Peasall Sisters sing with a mournful, melancholy and innocent quality that captures an acoustic classic country style of yesteryear. The sisters (Sarah, Hannah and Leah) ae only 18, 15 and 12, respectively. You might recognize their voices as those of George Clooney's daughters in "O Brother, Where Art Thou." Not just a lucky break or fluke, these kids have abundant talent. Their "First Offering" album was a success, and "Home to You" is also a very enjoyable followup. All three girls have an enchanting quality in their singing, and their close harmonies throughout a songs like "Freight Train Blues" are especially noteworthy. They each sing lead and harmony vocals. Sarah plays acoustic guitar and banjo, while Leah plays fiddle. Other joining in the instrumental fun are Randy Scruggs (guitar, slide guitar), Charlie Chadwick (bass, cello), Jamie Hartford (mandolin, electric guitar), Kenny Malone (drums), Laura Cash (fiddle), Larry Perkins (guitar), Leroy Troy (banjo), Gene Chrisman (drums), and Tony Harrell (accordion, piano, harmonium). This is one well-produced album by John Carter Cash. Sarah demonstrates her aptitude for songwriting ("Home to You" and "Logtown"), and Sarah and Hannah play a major role in arranging much of the other material.

The Peasalls choose songs that embody the traditional canon or its spirit and soul. It never hurts to give bonafide respect to the familiar folk ("Fair and Tender Ladies) or the material of the Carter Family ("I Never Will Marry"). They also show an appreciation and aptitude for bluegrass (Newton Thomas' "Rushing Around"), Irish ("Carrick Fergus") and Gospel ("Angel Band," "The Old Account").

4.0 out of 5 stars +1/2 -- Big step forward for young vocal trio January 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The Peasalls burst onto the roots music scene as the voices behind George Clooney's fictional daughters in the film "O Brother Where Art Thou?" Their 2002 CD debut combined Carter Family classics with Christian Contemporary numbers that framed their sisterly harmonies with a surprising dollop of showbiz savvy. The subsequent three years on the festival and concert circuits has refined both the harmonizing and the presentation, resulting in a CD that's a big step forward.

Three years along, the sisters have traded the schmaltzy CCM tunes for songs of faith and praise that better leverage their church harmonies. At times they are as tight as The Andrews Sisters, such as the three-part singing on "Freight Train Blues," but more often they simply raise goose bumps, such as on the a cappella "Where No One Stand Alone," the Carter classic, "I Never Will Marry," and the traditional "Fair and Tender Ladies." The latter pair's lyrics find surprising resonance with such young voices, casting them back to a time when all three of these teenage girls might already be married off.

Sarah Peasall's trio of originals, including the title track, show a growing lyrical talent that complements the songs assembled from traditional and contemporary catalogs. John Carter Cash's production is spot-on, with rich acoustic picking from Randy Scruggs augmented by mandolin, fiddle, stand-up bass and only the lightest touches of drums. While their debut sparkled, their sophomore effort is a revelation. 4-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings. [©2006 hyperbolium dot com]

5.0 out of 5 stars The Peasall Sisters January 18, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I discovered these young ladies through the movie O Brother Where Art Thou? and was immediately charmed by their youth, talent, and angelic voices. This CD is full of beautiful songs full of love that (whether you're a big bluegrass fan or not) you will develope a nostalgia for. Their harmonies are lovely, their voices are sweet, and their words are meaningful. Not to mention, they are all accomplished musicians!

5.0 out of 5 stars Strangely ... it's wonderful November 15, 2006
By espower
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The was an accidental purchase. I was listening to pandora and it played one of the songs on this album and at the time the only way to look at the album was to click "Buy from Amazon" but it looked to have too much of a southern christian slant for my tastes.

Amazon left it in my "cart" and when I did the next set of purchases I didn't even notice it was still there in the cart. I can't think of a single song on the album that isn't a pleasure to listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Vocal Simplicity June 13, 2008
Format:Audio CD
The Peasall Sisters' sound is sweet and harmonic without sappiness.
My 8 yr. old daughter and I listen to them as a way of cultivating an ear for harmonies. Their songs are pleasant and simple. The instrumentation is real and never overpowers the pure vocals. I do not care for country music at all but am able to listen to their music over and over again.
My daughter has taken quite a liking to them and the Peasalls have proven to be an act I don't mind her looking up to.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1/3 Dixie chicks, 1/3 Andrew Sisters, 1/3 original December 11, 2006
By Scott
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The first time I saw and heard them was on KY tv. Their sound is 1/3 Dixie chicks, 1/3 Andrew Sisters, 1/3 original and they sometimes had their father on base. Perfect! .... But there's a problem, they only have two albums.... Bummer!

Hopefully another one will be coming out soon. I think a Christmas album would be nice :o)
