Monoff

,
The band: Eddie Bayers - drums Brent Mason - electric guitar Bruce Bouton - steel guitar, dobro Danny Parks - acoustic guitar, mandolin Buddy Hyatt - piano, hammond organ Matt McKenzie/Mark Prentice/Duncan Mullins - bass "Intelligent lyrics, melodic ballads, beautiful performances both vocally and instrumentally – what more could one ask? All this can be heard on “Genuine”, the current album from German song stylist Sylkie Monoff. The award winning singer/writer spends her time in both her native country and Nashville where she collaborates with songwriters who have provided material for some of “Music City’s” hottest stars. With thirteen totally original Monoff originals “Genuine” blows like a breath of fresh air on a country scene that is threatening to become somewhat stale. Selecting tracks for illustration is very difficult for each and everyone is worthy of special mention but pushed hard I would cite my favourites as “Can’t Be Worse Than L.A.” (a song I feel destined to become one of my all-time favourites) and “Right At Hello”, with the Native American chant, provided by War Scout, at the beginning and conclusion of the track evoking strong memories of the wonderful Buffy Sainte Marie. This really is one hell of an album, and I do not say that about many contemporary country artists, one deserves to be a big, big success."
