EDITORS’ NOTES

This is country music done right: rich in harmonies, with acoustic instruments, the occasional fired-up electric guitar, and songwriting that points up the quartet's strengths. The Trishas hadn't even meant to become an ongoing concern; they chose their name because they were covering a Trisha Yearwood tune in tribute to Savannah Welch's dad, singer/songwriter Kevin Welch. However, the group's collective talent demanded that they work full-time. An EP led to this debut full-length, which recalls the strengths of The Dixie Chicks, Suzy Bogguss, and the alt-country groups who've returned country to its roots. "Mother of Invention" adds a twangy lead guitar to this celebration of resourcefulness. "Strangers" captures a sense of loss and alienation with its sorrowful gait. Kenny Vaughan kicks "Cheater's Game" into swampy terrain with bluesy, electric guitar that threatens to take a few heads off. "Cold Blooded Love" stalks the night with a nocturnal groove, haunted backing vocals, and creaky fiddle. "Rainin' Inside" works sultry Shelby Lynne territory.

Good Stuff

Although lacking the power and freshness of their EP. This CD is hands down better than almost anything parading as country music today. All four ladies are remarkable singers individually, but collectively they are the best on the scene today. Jamie Wilson stands out as the sultry element here as she does on he EP.
