KCSN writes: 'Susie Glaze does something with a song that only great singers can do...she grabs hold of a song's deepest emotion and purpose and wraps it tightly around your soul.' Folk music legend Jean Ritchie has called Susie Glaze 'a fresh young voice - a communicator - to me the most important of qualities in a singer...' and Bluegrass Unlimited calls her 'an important voice on the California Bluegrass scene.' The featured players on this title include nationally-recognized names in the music's genre, including the producer herself, Laurie Lewis, a legendary player, award-winning composer and recording artist for the past 20 years. The players include Herb Pedersen (a venerated Southern California recording artist for over 20 years), Dennis Caplinger (Los Angeles' go-to session player for fiddle and banjo), Rick Cunha (long-time session and touring artist with such artists as Emmylou Harris and Linda Rondstadt), young Nashville dobro phenom Mike Witcher, Old-time stars Tom Sauber and banjo son Patrick Sauber, bassist Bill Bryson (formerly of the Dusty Rose Band), Lewis' long-time musical partner, mandolinist Tom Rozum and the genius songwriter Rob Carlson, whose 7 new songs on this album are new classics of Acoustic Americana/Roots/Folk/Bluegrass fusion. These and songs by Iris Dement, Jean Ritchie and Bob Dylan fill out the 12-song roster. Lewis' arrangement of 'Lay Down Your Weary Tune' is a new milestone for Dylan's classic. Susie's last CD 'Blue Eyed Darlin'' was the winner of the Just Plain Folks 2006 Music Awards for Best Roots Album, and Folkworks Magazine's Pick for Best Bluegrass Album of 2005. Rob Carlson's seven songs on this new album are new bluegrass classics. Hear these and songs of Jean Ritchie, Iris Dement and Bob Dylan. Tracks include 'Maggie Bailey' 'Green Kentucky Blues' Iris Dement's 'Hotter Than Mojave In My Heart,' Jean Ritchie's classic 'The L&N Don't Stop Here Anymore' and Dylan's 'Lay Down Your Weary Tune.' Entertainment Weekly writes '...she can blow the roof off any joint lucky enough to book her.'
