I eventually sought out Cantrell's three previous studio albums -- 2000's 'Not the Tremblin' Kind', 2002's 'When the Roses Bloom Again, and 2005's 'Humming By the Flowered Vine' -- each containing mostly contemporary covers (by the likes of Allison, Jay Sherman-Godfrey, Amy Rigby and Lucinda Williams) with a classic or two thrown in and a few of her own songwriting efforts. Those CDs brilliantly demonstrated her appreciation of what country music has been and her open-mindedness about what it can be; album #5, 'No Way There From Here,' isn't much different, though this time she wrote or co-wrote all but one of the 12 tracks herself.
Cantrell's lyrics are typically thoughtful as they celebrate women in all their complexity and give voice to their desires, longings, everyday frustrations, etc.Read more ›
Laura wrote or co-wrote all of the songs except Beg or borrow days (written by Jennifer O'Connor). When I first saw the track listing, I wondered if Washday blues might by a cover of an obscure Dolly Parton track (a top 30 country hit in the 70's for her in America) but Laura's recording is her own song, and very impressive it is with a plaintive mandolin, sounding like a bluesy song should do in a country setting.
After a couple of plays, my provisional favorite tracks are Driving down your street (featuring a tastefully played banjo), the title track and Washday blues, but there is plenty of great music here that should delight all of Laura's existing fans and possibly win her some new fans.

Love Laura. We see her every chance we get in the NY/NJ area. She's the real deal. Hope you enjoy this strong album as much as we do!Published on March 23, 2014 by Incident51
