Got to listen to a wonderful six song EP this week – the CD Was released back in May of last year and is the first (and hopefully not the last) from alt-country singer/songwriter Whitney Mann from Madison, WI. Whitney is backed by Kyle Jacobson, Tim Russell and Andrew Harrison on the EP The Way Back Home which is a perfect showcase of the artists range – underpinned by a gorgeous country vocal and strong melodies with a healthy dose of pedal steel to complete the package.
Call the Cops is the lead off track and my pick from the half dozen on show, vocal and strummed guitar are joined by aching pedal steel in a tale of good love turning bad. On the strength of this EP Whitney is firmly in the “one to watch” category and I for one will be keeping an eye out for the next release.
