Last night I was cycling through some Shelby Lynne music and reading up on the inspiration for some of the songs on her new disc “I Can’t Imagine”, when I saw her younger sister Allison Moorer mentioned. Allison’s album “Down To Believing” is one of the strongest singer/songwriter song cycles I’ve heard/felt in a long time – maybe as far back as John Hiatt’s Slow Turning. There wasn’t a weak, or even weaker song on it. Passionate singer, terrific writer. The two of them are frankly, prodigies. Considering their family history/background, it’s a minor miracle they’re both here to share their gifts with us. I’m grateful for the songs.
