REVIEW  

This Time

(Two Tails Publishing)

I'm guessing you won't find many Americana, bluegrass, or celtic folk artists in Mornington Peninsula (Southeast of Melbourne), AUS, but this sumptuous six-year old trio of Natalie Parker, Ryan Pentland and Yanni Dellaportas meld all three style, with authenticity and aplomb. Throughout this debut full length (which follows their 2013 Motherland Ep), Parker's playful penny whistle invokes Irish dances as it weaves around carefree acoustic guitar, mandolin, harmonica, piano, strings and djembe. Meanwhile, Parker's lovely-lilted expressive vocals and her two male mates's huskier harmonies and sporadic leads, give their soulful, spiritual roots music a radio friendly, crossover pop appeal - see the contented "Eyoh", admiring "As We Begin", determined "This Time", infatuated "Falling", coquettish "Talk About It" and coveting "Fly Away", each expressing romantic attachment in all its delightful and difficult phases (sugatree.bandcamp.com)

REVIEW

This Time

(Two Tails Publishing)

"The songs on This Time are melodic and pensive, and delivered with so much sincerity that you can't help but be drawn into the music. Beautiful instrumentation and expert arrangements offer just the right backing for the intelligent lyrics and nice smooth melodies. And the vocal harmonies are out-of-this-world."
