The sophomore album from the group comprised of two Australians-mandolin player Kym Warner and bass player Carol Young-and a fiddle-playing Brit named Eamon McLoughlin, who met each other in Austin, Texas. Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson asked the band to perform on their national tour this summer, after which they will join Kasey Chambers throughout the fall. One listen to Weather & Water, and it's easy to hear why these musical giants are turning to the Greencards for tour support. The band produced the album and called on in-demand engineer Gary Paczosa (Alison Krauss, Nickel Creek, Dolly Parton) to engineer it. They also wrote nearly every song on it. When they brought in outside material, it was from top-notch writers like Patty Griffin, who contributed 'What You Are', a tenderly beautiful ballad. The highlight of the album, however, may well be the band's own 'Time', which mixes dreamy harmonies and a languid melody into a perfect rumination on the past. Dualtone. 2005.
