Wailin’ Jennys Make A Joyful Noise
Times Record News – Wichita Falls, TX

I was going to comment on “Bright Morning Stars” by the Wailin’ Jennys with the “girl” albums from last week, but there just wasn’t room. Not that there’s much more room this week, but I’ve got to get it out there because these ladies deserve to get a little newspaper ink.
With voices like angels, and the sweetest vocal harmony in the business, Canadian songbirds Nicky Mehta, Heather Maase and Ruth Moody are one of the hottest acoustic trios in the world as The Wailin’ Jennys, even if mainstream country radio has basically ignored them.
Their new album, “Bright Morning Stars,” is an endlessly interesting mix of contemporary and traditional, uptown and down-home, happy and haunting, and every song is a rare crystal gem of sound that gently demands close listening and fond contemplation.
“Bright Morning Stars” is a delight, and I’m definitely a new fan.NEXT rating: A-
