Yesterday, I received a nice little treat in the mail: My very own "Strange Country" debut album.
The Album art is fantastic, and the photography was very cleverly taken. I'm still trying to figure out how they made it look so interesting.
I'm not sure what I like most about this band; is it the great musicianship? Is it the laid back vocal style of Mr. John E. Flamingeaux? Or that they have a beautiful female sidekick singing like a baby sparrow. Strange Country has such warmth and perfection that at times becomes overwhelmingly beautiful.
Having developed an online friendship with Mr. John, I was given the opportunity and immense honor of adding some very light vocals on the title track "Strange Country"(added below for your hearing pleasure). I'm not sure what compelled him to ask me to be a part of this, but I guess I'll just take it as a compliment or a once in a lifetime opportunity to be a part of something grand; something grand and something rather beautifully strange,coming from Strange Country's heartstrings.
