CD Review: New Music From A Little Bit More, Inward Of Eden, Two Cities One World & Blue Honey

Country roots duo, Reed Fields and Jill Hamlin have teamed up as A Little Bit More to release their debut album "Silhouettes." Both artists have musical backgrounds as Jill previously performed with J.T. Cure (Chris Stapleton) and Reed worked with the bands Flat Creek and Charlie Lyons Band.  Their new 13-song release begins with the outlaw sounds of "Get Up Crowd" as Reed's vocals rally the troops. When Jill takes the lead on the country ballad, "If Only For A Moment," you are instantly swept-up by the warmth of her vocals. The duo call "Beer Bottle" their "Garth Brooks song" as they follow Brooks' blueprint on this swinging tune. Their two voices harmonize beautifully during "The Last Time," while "Holdin'" has the perfect pop melody to capture the hearts of mainstream country radio. Their new album finishes with the up-beat rhythm of "I'm Not In The Picture," which carries a nostalgic, classic country sound and the love letter duet of "Save Me Tonight."

Next, from Knoxville, TN comes the latest release titled "Mind Control" from rockers Inward Of Eden. It features the guitar blazing single "Slow Burn," which has the band delivering a mature, heavy blues/rock sound. Their new EP only features four songs as they look to capture your attention with the classic seventies rock vibe of "Devil" and the hard rock, marching rhythm of "Ghost Of Amelie."

The Bulgarian/American duo of Anna Yanova and Jared Cattoor, better known as Two Cities, One World recently released their new album "Let The Whole World Disappear." Their new 12-song release carries a very laid-back vibe as Anna's vocals are spectacular with the help of her multi-instrumentalist husband Jared on song like "Suga Daddy" and "Disappear." The music gets funky on "Honey Sweet Voice" as Anna's lets her soulful spirit soar on this slow number. Their worlds mesh together perfectly on the acoustic folk delivery of "She's A Beauty" and "Bird Song."
