    I actually listened to their self titled album today because of this thread!

    And what did you think? Down in the Valley, Honey Come Home, Rivers and Roads, Lost in My Mind...oh so good from beginning to end! The new album is a bit more modern sounding, less folky, but just as good to me. Another Story, Gone, 10,000 Weight, Cruel...ok, have to run and get them in my ears again.

    1ok weight for me from the new one.........and totally agree ros on the self release - very solid and diverse effort

    jos is right the second album was his f' up as it is way too dominated by jon songs........his new three though I think are a hugely good sign :)

    It's true he's hardly on this album. It's like he and Charity switched places. It is primarily a Jon album for sure, though I won't complain too much since his songs are also the strongest on it, imo. I'm glad to know Josiah has more in the pipeline because I thought his on the first album were so good.

    jon is a more prolific songwriter...........jos needs to get away and have his own space so that is why he missed because jon was able to write while they were on the road ........ little thath factoids :)

    photo.JPG Hi,
    Router (and work)problems, so apologies for delay in responding.

    I think I must be slightly to the left, just off the picture.
    Didn't try pushing to the front but had a good view despite tall, camera wielding, fans.
    Really enjoyed the concert and loved the interplay between the members of the band.
    It was a fun show and the band seemed to be enjoying themselves and talking like an American 'having a blast!'.
    Josiah lay on his back with his head on the edge of the stage while Jon was singing and tempted Manchester ladies...
    In Liverpool there would have had even more audience participation!

    Perhaps the drums and keyboards could have been less prominent but maybe it was where I was standing.

    I thought the album 'Let's be still' had been overproduced but the sound on the record was similar to what you hear live.
    Really talented songwriters and if it were possible to see them in an intimate venue playing acoustically, life would be near perfect, (lucky people at the upcoming USA house concert).

    Rivers and Roads,Shake, Homecoming Heroes and Let's be Still were highlights of the nearly 1 + 3/4hour show.
    Would love my Liverpool friends to see them. The journey to and from Manchester is a drag on a wet Sunday night.
    I must start to work out who wrote what, but does it really matter.
    Made me remember CSNY and a few other bands from a few years ago.

    Off to York tomorrow to see David Ford and Jarrod, should be a good night and staying overnight in York will be a bonus.
    Take care all.

    First of all as i have told you occasions please stop apologizing.....even if your report sucked - which of course it didn't - it would still be better than nothing.

    but yes very well done!!! your summary certainly brought a big smile to my face if that is worth anything...............i am very glad you enjoyed and yeah they are a bunch of american bozos.........that is why for the most part my better friends are josiah and tyler lol..........but one thing don't bash too harsh on the rhythm as for one tyler smashin is a huge pr piece lol and kenny deserves a huge amount of recognition for the composition - he is a give them their just deserts!!

    enjoy ford and jarrod.............have a blast

    thanks again for the report!

    greetings y'all

    been a tumultuous start to 2015 with the house basically burning down but that's another story (ba boom tish)

    anyhoo we moved into the lease house on wed and inaugurated it with another fantastic #snellysessions...........many thought the best one yet

    but we purposefully kept it small and local - 24 lucky souls were part of a great evening mostly of them trying out their new material for the third album with some great songs from Carleigh Aikins as well - we have an interesting situation if you ask me - qb battle as to who is the starter perhaps??!! cuz if you ask me I am on the side of my gal! special guest at the last hour was jon - really made it special.......also got stellar renditions of said another story, let's be still and honey come home by jos. Josiah was chatting this morning they played for 90 minutes but it didn't feel like it at all - so awesome!

    pic is from the private dinner after the gig - entire weekend tho was fantastic as we killed it friday night til 4 and then yesterday's greatness ................been dealing with coming down jitters today!

    thanks all for the love - it is a royal pain in the neck but thankfully no one was hurt or anything - and because the fire dept was so quick they at least got it under control so almost all of our personal stuff was saved even our wardrobe :)

    and at the end of the day we get a 12-year gut redo!!:D

    but 10 weeks waiting in the home2 suites as nevermind knows was a royal pain - I seriously felt like I was getting out of jail haha!

    and yes Carmel having that crew staying with us through the first weekend was a good way to inaugurate this lease home - the only problem is most like it better than our home ouch!!! :confused:

    Well, it only counts that you like your home and that redo. You sound like you have a great attitude through it all. All the best!!!
    Here's a bit that never gets old, for me anyway. The word "stuff" becomes absolutely ridiculous after awhile.Hope it brings you a good laugh!!
