Format: Audio CD
Playing Time - 45:57 -- Aiming for new heights in the Americana market, The Skylighters have the necessary luminescence to go far. The also have the ability to see through and beyond any perceived or self-imposed ceiling in the music market. With solid footings in multiple genres, the ensemble is a collaboration of three members of the Nashville-based group Last Train Home (Eric Brace, J. Carson Gray, Martin Lynds) with mandolinist Jimmy Gaudreau and pedal steel guitarist Mike Auldridge. Brace's expressive lead vocals are warm and good-natured, and they wrap agreeably around the breaks, fills and vocal harmonies provided primarily by Jimmy and Mike.

The Skylighters' likable repertoire draws upon both successful established oft-recorded hits and balances them with more obscure songs. Clearly fans of The Louvin Brothers, the band covers four of their songs. An appetizing and spirited rendition of Pee Wee King and Redd Stewart's "Bonaparte's Retreat" gets the toes tapping. Another favorite is Jim Croce's "Maybe Tomorrow" that incorporates the piano of Jen Gunderman who also flavors "Carolina Star" with some laid-back accordion. That Hugh Moffatt composition is also given a slightly different mood with the use of Gaudreau's mandola. While the steel and mandolin are integral elements of their band sound, some diverse guest instrumentation is always a wise move for greater attention-grabbing variety in a 45-minute set. A heavier drum track and Gaudreau's electric guitar seem problematically overbearing for "Dear One," but another listener might actually like this more raucous rendition. While I love the classic country wail of pedal steel, I personally found some of the more acoustic numbers with Auldridge's resophonic guitar to be satisfying treats for a little change.
