Carla Van Hoose is deep in the "Americana" music movement of today. Her repertoire dips into bluegrass, folk, blues and a little rock and roll for spice are stirred up and delivered to you by her soothing contralto voice.

Her Music:

The music on this album is outstanding. The smooth even flow of the singer is great. Those of us from Kentucky understand the music too.
