Tennessee artist Sarah Harralson is backed by a crew of Nashville cats whose nimble, knowing skills help elevate her crafty tunes and allow her appealing voice—with its tomboy-next-door grittiness—to hold your attention. Her subjects (the career criminals in “County Time,” the relatable metaphor that fuels “Watered Down Whiskey”) are depicted in ways that draw you in. “Chasing Ghosts” sounds tailor-made for young teens. If there’s a weak link in all this it’s her material—the songs’ hooks are not quite as infectious as they gotta be. Still, Harralson is a compelling wordsmith and it’s clear that she is on track to deliver catchy songs with undeniable impact.
