Washington Bluegrass duo, Steve Hussey and Jake Eddy, have teamed up to deliver a piece full of string music and country blues that’ll have you strumming away over every tune. Grinning and tapping your feet over the album opener, “Little Shove”, Steve Hussey and Jake Eddy lightly lyrically express losing a loved one over reminiscing of better days. Slowing down over a simple and emotive tune, the second track, “Into The Ether”, showcases Steve Hussey’s vocal talent that is cultivated and exudes magnetic masculinity that will have the ladies feeling giddy over sweet and soulful lyricism.
If you’re looking for a smooth track over the campfire while soul-searching through your inner self, “Chalk It Up” is a gentle tear-jerker that voices loneliness in a vulnerable and commendable way. If you’re a fan of older John Mayer, the fifth track, “Master Your Mind” is a sweet and soothing track that speaks of life’s simplicities that are often overlooked through the workings of the mind and everyday life. “The Miller Girl” is a women’s dream track over a summer sunset with her handsome beau that flows seamlessly with the addition of a fiddle, mandolin, and banjo. Imagine being able to serenade the love of your life even remotely like Steve Hussey over the album’s ninth track, “I Pick You”, is a country track that strums fluidly along the theme of love throughout ‘The Miller Girl’.
Closing with “Sweet”, the last track is ingeniously entitled as it leaves listeners with a hefty dose of love and smooth sweetness akin to sitting on the porch after a beautiful summer rain.
You will get the idea of the talent flowing between Steve Hussey and 16-year-old, Jake Eddy, over ‘The Miller Girl’, which is certainly worth a listen for fans of all genres interested in expanding their music palette.
