Those Poor Bastards' singer Lonesome Wyatt teams up with Rachel Brooke for ten songs of woe and unrelenting despair. Rachel and Lonesome each wrote half of the songs, but they sing all of them together. Recommended for those who are sick at heart.
"It is a pinnacle of gothic country, and at times it reaches the pinnacle of all music." - savingcountrymusic.com
"The ideal soundtrack for receiving the Last Rites...like Nick Cave with a banjo." - Rue Morgue Magazine

ABOUT RACHEL BROOKE “Like so many of us, Rachel Brooke was born in the wrong time. Her classic style, and her simple and poetic songs ﬁt much more snugly in an oval picture frame of tarnished metal and smoky glass than on CMT or Clear Channel pop country. Her songs have that capacity to take you somewhere you haven’t been for many many years, or to take you somewhere you want to be: in the depths of drunkenness and depression, or back home where all was right. The songs are not meant for this modern world or the people who dwell in it. They are meant for YOU...the wayward soul rambling down the Lost Highway.” savingcountrymusic.com
