You know what’s more fun to read than a good review of your new record? I’ll tell you, a review that has to go through the Google translator in order to read it! Yes, the syntax is a bit wonky, but I think you’ll get the gist of it. Thank you Freddy for the kind words.
“Who succeeds in the Texan pedal steel virtuoso and legend Lloyd Maines and singer and song writer Terri Hendrix to bowsas producers of his new album is without a doubt a great talent. That’s what singer and song writer Leslie Krafka from Houston managed to achieve for the recording of her second album “on. ward”.
This talented young lady had than in 2010 even though the title of ‘ Songwriter Of The Year ‘ by the ‘ Houston songwriter’s Association ‘ and the award for song of the year for the song “Wandering Troubadour“ from her debut album “The White Cat in the achieved Sessions”. Her second studio album, the expectations were very high and we can reassure you-they were also totally fulfilled.
Leslie Krafka wrote ten of the eleven songs, all with the love Act and she chose the hit song “Drunken poet’s Dream“ byHayes Carll & Ray Wylie Hubbard to make it a handsome cover version for this cd in to sing. This album opens beautifully with the countryliedje guided by accordion “Magdalena” with Lloyd Maines in addition to multi-instrumentalist also as backing vocalist, as later on quite a few other tracks from this record.
At the very best songs to “on.“ ward “we select the dynamic Wine, Women And Song”, and the impressive South Texas Fall “tearjerker“ love songs “Stay With Me” and “The Pain Of Losing You” over the fear of love luck anyway yet to lose. The typical country rockers “Whiskey High” (see video), “I Want Love” and “Freedom Train” with a lot of pedal steel by LloydMaines are almost mandatory work on a Texas country album.
You have to be a fan of traditional country music to this new album from Leslie Krafka to know to value estimate, but that this disc can be a classic genre within his music stands for us beyond dispute. Convince yourself and enjoy the crystal clear singing talent that this young lady from Houston, Texas lies.”
