Album Notes
In this second CD Stephanie Bettman has collaborated with band member Luke Halpin to create a fully acoustic, delightfully eclectic sound that is far greater than the sum of it's parts. Together they weave a spell that takes the listener from the up tempo down home fiddlin' of "Fiddler's Bend", to the soulful sorrowful ballads like the transcendent "The Darker Side Of Happy" and the heartbreaking "The Sound Of Time", to the super hooky folk/pop of the title track: "It All Comes Back To Love". The hooks and lyrics will stick with you long after the album is over.

As with her debut album (that reached # 8 on Folk DJ charts) Stephanie once again delivers masterful fiddling, memorable lyrics, and a voice reminiscent of such greats as Joan Baez, Patty Griffin, and Kathy Matea. Luke Halpin brings all his talents to the table with co-writes on two of the tracks and two of his own originals in which he sings lead. The multi-talented phenom also plays everything in his arsenal tranforming what could have been a sparse acoustic sound into a full band.
The Album is produced with delicate perfection by Ed Tree (Spencer Davis Band, Rita Coolidge) who also plays bass and guitar on various tracks. Particular highlights include Luke's original composition "Buttonwillow" a groovy gypsy grass instrumental that is exciting and fun from start to finish, Stephanie's catchy "I Just Wanna Love You" that will have you singing along despite yourself, and the co-write "Fiddler's Bend" reminiscent of the hit "Fishin' In The Dark".

It All Comes Back to ... "How long till I can listen again to this CD?"
I just simply love this record. When I first put the disc in my player, I was ready for a quick step review, but just a few bars in, I was going, “Whoa now… Hey, wow, these guys can really sing and pick. Great singing, terrific arrangements. From the contagious beat and happy feel of the opening track, “Fiddler’s Bend” to the final song, “After the Storm,” I could not wait too long, and I just had to listen to the whole CD all over again. And I was not disappointed the second time either.

Stephanie’s fiddling, and Luke’s guitar and mandolin are terrific. And the material… These songs are very special. I really cannot pick one favorite, because each took me to a place to which I wish to return to again and again. And I guess that is why it really does come back, comes back to a great love for what music can do. GET THIS CD!! Highly recommended!
