Editorial Reviews

Review

Heavenly harmonies - Celestial singing. Sounds of stars in the making, with your songs as safe haven. Terrific. --Michael Nesmith

Product Description

The trio of women that is The Refugees emerged on the music scene as a verifiably unmatched force of talent, diversity, and experience. Cindy Bullens, Deborah Holland and Wendy Waldman combine soaring harmonies, indelible musicianship, and unforgettable stage presence. Individually, The Refugees have logged more than three decades in the industry, with nineteen solo albums and multiple Grammy Award nominations to their credit, featuring musical styles that blend country, rock, folk, and Americana. To describe them as eclectic would be an understatement.

Cindy Bullens has toured the world with Elton John, racked up Grammy nominations and released a half dozen albums.

Deborah Holland began her career as a member of the critically acclaimed Animal Logic with Stewart Copeland and Stanley Clarke, spawning the hit (There's a) Spy in the House of Love.

Wendy Waldman has been recognized as one of the leading recording artists and songwriters in music since the debut of her band Bryndle (with Karla Bonoff, Kenny Edwards and Andrew Gold) in the 1970s, followed by a successful solo career as an artist, writer and producer.

As a fan of both Cindy Bullens and Wendy Waldman for over 30 years, I could never understand why neither of these women were able to break through to the top level of super-stardom. Both consummate singer/songwriters, they have it all....great lyrics, smart arrangements, stunning vocals. I guess some things just aren't meant to be...or meant to be understood.
This could all change, though, with UNBOUND, their debut release with their new group, The Refugees. Along with Deborah Holland, the pair have formed a sort of distaff CSN, and the results are magical. We're talking A game across the board...lyrics, harmonies, instrumentation, production, the works!
Things start strongly with the lilting title track. A rollicking slice of bluegrass heaven, the arrangement is crisp and clean, each instrument shining in it's own light, cushioning the others in a warm and well-blended embrace. The vocals are just as strong, with each of the ladies taking lead on a verse, only to come together in perfect unison on the chorus. THIS is what real singing's all about!
Next up is "Jellico Highway." Still full of the pain and hurt that graced the original version (on Bullens' 2005 DREAM #29), the arrangement's been fleshed out a bit more, making everything a little more full-bodied. The swirling, angelic backing vocals also add a pinch of something extra, sort of along the lines of the Eagles at their best. Very nice.
The added vocal prowess also bolsters the re-recording of Waldman's "Fishin' In The Dark" (taken from 2006's excellent MY TIME IN THE DESERT). The track has an earthier, more sensual vibe this time around, but there's also a more playful element, creating a groove that is undeniable. One of a number of tracks here that radio would be wise to jump on!

5.0 out of 5 stars RICH IN TEXTURE AND SPIRIT January 27, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The warmth and comfort that is conveyed from this collection of songs reflects the talents, sophistication and spirit of the performers. This is a real tight group where the individuals work in what appears, an effortless fashion, to create a wonderful effect on each of the songs. The arrangements are varied through the creative use of a few instruments as well as interesting harmonies. The songs display the mature songwriting talents of the accomplished members. There are no exceptional individual standouts because the entire collection is that strong. Through the course of listening to this music I frequently find myself smiling; a habit that has become almost lost to me over the years. I think mature music fans will appreciate this collection and reach for it often when they need to refresh their optimism in the human spirit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eastern Kentucky April 25, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Rufugees is a delightful project bringing three strong solo performers to a united voice. Wendy Waldman produced the disc along with Deborah Holland & Cindy Bullens. Their vocal blend is seamless, each giving their best. My two favorites include Cindy Bullens' "Jellico Highway" with its chords creating a tale of regret and suspense, "Somewhere in eastern Kentucky with a whole lot of time left to kill, I decided to get off the interstate, drive up on into the hills." "I like to flirt, I like to tease, I like to bring those boys right to their knees," begins the delightful "Stickin' With My Baby's Love." Deborah Holland's "(There's A) Spy in the House of Love" is a bittersweet ballad with Waldman-Bullens harmonies painting a tight sonic background. Deborah Holland's sense of humor that was front & center in her CD Bad Girl Once... brings out smiles as her child doesn't want to practice "The Violin." Wendy sings on "All My Angels," a tender tearjerker. Wendy Waldman's "Save the Best for Last" that was on her "My Time in the Desert" CD closes the set. There's not a weak moment on the disc. The music is acoustic and tugs on the emotions. The disc is on "Wabuho" Records that sounds like Waldman-Bullens-Holland. Enjoy!
