From Riick Droit:
"I have recently finished this new album which has been a passion and joy every day for the last 3 years, and
it is an even bigger thrill to finally have it finished and glistening in all its shiny glory in my hands. . and magic of
miracles , even in time for Christmas 2013 !!
This album is more than a typical acoustic driven album, during Production I was fortunate to have the advice and expertise of my engineer Mark Hallman, who has not only Produced hundreds of albums including Gold Award winning Records for Ani DiFranco, Carole King and Shawn Colvin among others. . also I was thrilled to have such fantastic guests as
Sara Hickman (Duet Vocals and Harmony),
Christopher Yarrow (Washtub Bass, Harmony & Mandolin)
Warren Hood (Fiddle),
Brian Standefer (Cello),
Laura Freeman (Duet Vocals).
Tami Griffin on( Flute and harmony),
Theo Bick (Hurdy Gurdy),
Kristin DeWitt (Harmony),
Erin Jo (Fiddle)
Helena Nash (Harmony Vocal)
Both Laura Freeman (a.k.a. Luna Tart) and Tami Griffin performed on my Year 2000 album "Laughing Like A Banshee"
This album embodies the dream symbols ever present in our subconscious mind, from Wild Mustangs to Angel Guides, from Devils, Goddesses and Monsters to Historical figures such as King George III and Paul Revere and Doc Holliday.
The Firehorse runs the course, blazing across the prairie and collecting his battle scars along the way.
"Return of the Firehorse" marks the return of the Rick Droit we all came to know and love on his "Gypsy Love" and "Laughing Like A Banshee" albums. fiery, mercurial, and who used words to sculpt a rich landscape of imagery. .making each song a unique creation of his own.
This is album is more honest, open and down to earth than Rick's earlier works, time and experience have matured Droit's writing and his voice has become richer without losing any of his three octave range. .Firehorse has a purity that is hard to capture in a recording, a genuine heartsong album that may become your new favorite.
A wonderful gift that lasts and lasts.
