CD Review: Colorado's Ironwood Rain Return With "Ships"
The new album begins with the acoustic guitar strumming country rocker “Ages”. The cleverness of the lyrics with the highlights of violin gives you a feeling of real, true “down to earth” music. The harmonizing of “Fly To You” compares Ironwood Rain to their influences Crosby, Stills & Nash. The title song “Burn The Ships” tells of life lessons with a chorus that just wraps you up until your singing along. The power of Scotte Burns’ songwriting is felt in the soulful ballad “Where A Man Would Stand.” The band does their best Jethro Tull impersonation on the album closer “The Attic” with its combination of mystical lyrics and simple, but meaningful music.
The band will be performing this weekend at the D-Note in Arvada, CO on Saturday and at Buffalo Rose in Golden, CO on Sunday. Check out Ironwood Rain’s website (ironwoodrain.com) for upcoming shows and more information on their latest release.
