Together, the Australian husband and wife duo released 2008’s critically acclaimed, Rattlin Bones. The new album, Wreck and Ruin, picks up where the last one left off with another collection of hard-hitting acoustic-driven songs. Purchase the Deluxe Edition and get 5 additional tracks.
Produced by Doug Lancio (Patty Griffin, Gretchen Peters), the album sounds quite mature for a debut. Her songwriting is also above par, it probably doesn’t hurt that her father’s one of the best around. “My dad definitely serves as one of my biggest inspiration. I draw from his music.” The album features some twangy Americana and hard rockin’ tunes as well.
