Format: Audio CD
Blue Highway performed its first gig on New Year's Eve in 1994 with its original lineup that includes the same consummate musicians that comprise the band today: Tim Stafford (guitar), Wayne Taylor (bass), Shawn Lane (mandolin, fiddle, guitar), Jason Burleson (banjo, guitar, mandolin), and Rob Ickes (Dobro, lap steel). Tim, Wayne and Shawn provide the vocals. Their early years found them associated with the reputable Rebel record label. In 1996, Blue Highway won an IBMA award for "Emerging Artist of the Year." In 1996 and 2006, they were recognized with IBMA "Album of the Year" awards. In 1997 and 2004, they won IBMA awards for "Gospel Recording of the Year." What a treat to hear a band with such a stable and solid lineup so full of talent! The internationally-renown quintet has now been associated with Rounder Records for over a decade.

Over the years, Blue Highway has carved out their niche in bluegrass. Their musical vision has always incorporated accessible melodies, bright lyricism, and interesting dynamics. "Sounds of Home" is noteworthy for its all-original emphasis, with the exception of the public domain cover "Nobody's Fault but Mine." Taylor, Stafford and Lane's songwriting abilities are showcased. Burleson also penned a snappy instrumental "Roaring Creek." The band's considerable emotional depth shines through on moving songs like "Storm" and "Drinking from a Deeper Well." The former has us looking inward "to see the dawn when the storm is gone." The sorrow of a generic mining disaster is captured in the mournful ¾-time "Only Seventeen." Every band has a few unique signature arrangements we have become accustomed to, and Shawn Lane's solo vocalizing on "I Ain't Gonna Lay My Hammer Down" is an example that opens the album.

The melodies are beautiful, the songs thoughtful and sometimes heartwrenching, and the group dynamics are tight, polished and always, always intriguing. I love Blue Highway's music, and this eagerly-anticipated release did not disappoint me!
Favorites: "Sounds of Home" (it makes me cry sometimes--the words so accurately convey the feelings we have about home, and even though this is a very traditional subject for bluegrassers, Shawn Lane has given it a different spin!) and "Bluebird Days," written by Tim Stafford and sung by Wayne Taylor. Both are songs about the bittersweetness of life that showcase the songwriters' ways with words.

Great bluegrass music. Love their music and their sound. Saw them on Song of the Mountains on tv and ordered the CD and it did not disappoint.
