(2012/AMBER CROSS) 11 tracks (40:58) digipac. Amber Cross grew up in Maine surrounded by gospel
(her father is a preacher, and Mom plays piano in church) and has
released her debut album You Can Come In to great critical acclaim.Comparisons to Iris Dement abound, and while You Can Come In
could almost be a classed as a bluegrass album, Cross' Appalachian
rootsy sound is supplemented by a country vibe with drums and steel
guitar that easily crosses the boundaries.An old-timey feel, and clearly a contender for fans of Rounder or
Smithsonian recordings, but the feistiness of Amber Cross' delivery will
ensure a broad appeal for the 'little girl with the big voice'.
