Every once in awhile it seems out of no where an artist comes along and unexpectedly knocks you right out of your boots. Renée Wahl is that performer, with her latest release, “Cumberland Moonshine”. She has made a home in numerous places and finally landed in Nashville, TN where she is giving all the talent there a run for their money.
This CD is 12 tracks of perfection. From beginning to end, it starts off wonderful and finishes outstandingly awesome. It is difficult to have a CD these days with this many songs on it and have every single one of them stand out above the one before it. They are catchy, hooky and have a familiar vibe. Probably the most radio friendly CD I have heard in a long time.
Renée has a knack for writing. She knows how to tell a story that leaves nothing to your imagination and draws you into her world; and trust me, you so want to be there. Vocally she has a subtle country twang that rings with power and conviction. The song, “Around” is one of my favorites. It sticks in your head and you can’t help but singing it over and over long after it ended. It is one of many cleverly articulate tunes amongst the group.
There are so many cool things on this CD it would be difficult to sum it up in a few paragraphs. There are not enough words in the dictionary that would describe the greatness. Renée Wahl has come to play and she does it quite well. I do not think your musical catalog is complete until you have, “Cumberland Moonshine” in it. Buy it, and sit back and enjoy.
