EDITORS’ NOTES

This Nashville foursome—comprising sisters Callie and Phoebe Cryer and brothers Bruno and Taylor Jones—bring a freewheeling spirit to their songwriting and playing, paying homage to American roots music while asserting their own identities. The 21-year-old Callie tears into “Got No Friends” and a cover of Son House’s “Grinnin in Your Face” with a haunting bluesy wail, while 19-year-old Phoebe’s sweeter tones work beguiling magic on “Jolly Robber” and “Will You Love Me.” Seamless vocal harmonies and creative arrangements keep the album consistently interesting as the band shifts between Jason Mraz–like acoustic pop (“Flower Flower”), moody folk-rock (“Close My Eyes,” ”Footprints in the Snow”), and bittersweet balladry (“Winter”). Songs like “Better Now,” “Instrument for You," and “Lawdy” explore Christian themes with unusual freshness and subtlety. Beyond its high level of musicianship, The Fourth Wall stands out for its guilelessness. These tracks have an honest sense of joy and sorrow that can melt the stoniest of hearts.

Best album in my collection!

gabe37220,

What can I say - not gonna lie.
Every week I have a new favorite song - then I go back to another song because I hear it in a different light.

Trust me on this from the internet - this is going to be in your top most played library. BOOM!

speaks for itself

chandeliersky,

This second album doesn't disappoint! All the freshness from the debut album is retained, plus an edgier, bluegrassier new sound. Favorite track is Footprints in the Snow followed closely by Better Now, Close My Eyes, and Flower Flower. But honestly, one can't even pick favorites here - the Vespers have done it again, and $8 is a meager price to pay for the countless listens this will elicit. :)

WoW!

Shaun D.,
