P.M. (Mercyland Records)
by Phil Madeira
FOR FANS OF: Buddy Miller, Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett
Rating: 4 Stars
On the heels of his critical collaborative masterpiece, Mercyland, Nashville music legend Madeira assembles yet another treasure trove of transparent American-Folk tunes benefiting from stellar co-writes with Cindy Morgan, Amy Grant and Matraca Berg. Add the singer-songwriter’s smoky vocal soul, vintage folk instrumentation and achy verses, and P.M. is a musician purist’s playground.
