Product Description

Nancy McCallion is best known as the songwriter and vocalist for original Celtic-Norteno-you-name-it folk-rock cult band The Mollys. Her latest studio project, Take a Picture of Me, is a recession-inspired collection of songs dedicated to the working poor of America. It brings together Tucson's hottest musicians: Ralph Gilmore, Steve Grams, Danny Krieger and former Mollys members Catherine Zavala and Kevin Schramm. Although often compared favorably to Lucinda Williams and other leading female writers, McCallion's sharp takes on life-lived-small also bring to mind Tom Wait's dark, quirky tales. Take a Picture of Me isn't so much an eclectic departure from her earlier material as a continuation with yet more variations in style. Although categorized as an Irish-American singer-songwriter during the Mollys period, McCallion was never boxed in by any genre.

Take a Picture of Me" is the latest album from Nancy McCallion. It's a wonderful collection of easy listening folk/rock songs that is inspired by the recent economic recession and its difficult effect upon the lives of the American poor. "Clydes Bonny Banks" is a beautiful and leisurely folk number that has just a hint of a Celtic sound, in which McCallion sings with crisp and clean vocal clarity. Another highlight, "Good Old Days," is a see-sawing folk song with a little bit of a honky-tonk influence that will get you tapping your toes with its bouncy beat and rootsy lyrics. "Cruel Thing" is a song in which we hear McCallion sing with an edgier style in more of a rocking folk song as the steady drums and power chords of the guitar compliment her voice. This album is a wonderful example of contemporary folk/rock music, which takes influences from many genres, yet always resulting in an excellent American-folk sound. If you think you would like to take in a folk/rock reaction to the recent economic recession which has affected us all, then take a listen to "Take a Picture of Me" by Nancy McCallion as you will be thoroughly pleased by this collection of folk/rock songs.

An exquisite talent who should never be underestimated.

Now based in Tucson, Arizona, the marvelous Nancy McCallion has released here a cracker of an album. You sometimes find in many newly released albums that the vast majority of the tracks can sometimes sound the same. This is not the case here, as every track is a delight to hear.

Perhaps the finest song of the twelve has to be It's Never too Late to Get Lucky. Changing beat on several occasions, the backing harmonies along with the delightful harmonies is emotional to say the least. Waver On is just as fine too. With an early rock and roll beat about it, it is a track which can wholeheartedly be described as one which has direct influences from Hank Snr. Danny Krieger's slide guitar too is just peachy, and is that good you have to listen to the track several times just to appreciate it fully. The charitable spirit is certainly present here, as one US dollar form the purchase of each copy of this album is donated to the Primavera Foundation; a Tucson charity which helps people to escape the poverty line. I admite to having heard many a fine album in my life, but this album certainly ranks amongst the best of them.
