This Time

by SugaTree

Here is a review from

SugaTree is the Australian-based trio comprised of Natalie Parker, Ryan Pentland, and Yanni Dellaportas. Interesting that this celtic band would be based in Australia. But even moreinteresting is the fact that the tracks on this album could very easily appeal to the continually growing music fans who are into Americana/bluegrass inspired pop. These folks have done an impeccable job with this independent release. The sound and packaging could compete with anything currently being released by major labels. 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. If we hadn't read the press release, we would've sworn this trio was based in Nashville, Tennessee. And that's not because they play country pop, because they don't. It's because their sound has a lot in common with some of the cool undercurrents happening in Music City in 2018. Twelve smart compositions including "Eyoh," "As We Begin," "Nothing Else," and "The Sugar Tree."
