From Tennessee, this talented duo conjure a captivating sound that traces its lineage to the mountain folk tradition, with Dorothy Daniel's affecting voice and Ben DeBerry's artful touch on acoustic guitar combining for a rustic, roughhewn effect. "Shine" is paced by a dramatic, eerie, funereal drumbeat while Daniel's straightforward lead vocal brims with emotion. The duo hit their stride on the jaunty song "The Mountain" where Daniel thrives in the higher range and is echoed effectively by DeBerry's own voice. The production on all the songs is excellent, especially on "Receive" which artfully adds fiddle, banjo and mandolin, gently easing their sounds into the arrangement for an effect that is tender and delicate.
