ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Santa Cruz singer-songwriter, Sherry Austin’s rich voice is informed by a quietly amused, sometimes rueful understanding of life’s ever-turning cycles and the quirks of human nature.

Sherry’s convincing, as well as talented songwriting, has earned awards and high praise from her many live performances and from her first cd –‘Drive By Romance’. Her lyrics are alive with life experiences and have a refreshing down-to-earth feel.

With her second cd release, ‘Drive On Back’, Sherry’s writing evolves and ranges from sentimental, to political, and reflective aspects of life. Her four covers of Dylan/Old Crow Medicine Show, Tim O’Brien, Martha Scanlan, and Fred Eaglesmith are right on the money.

A regular on KPIG Radio’s live show, Sherry has opened concerts and festivals for Iris Dement, John Hiatt, David Bromberg, and others. She has attracted support from local press for her various benefit concerts and for her entertaining live concerts. Her music is rewarding, believable and sometimes humerous. She has an honest approach to songwriting that is very refreshing. Her stage presence is captivating, her storytelling passionate.

A Gem
If she'd done this when she was younger she'd be a big star. There's a whole lot of love, a world- wise view, and a tremendous talent here. God Bless the Sherry Austins of the World for what they bring us.

Michael Gaither

Another great mix of riginal tunes and choice covers
"Another great mix of original tunes and choice covers. Retooling "Wagon Wheel" as a duet with Keith Greeninger is some kinda brilliant. The choir and rotating lead vocals (between Sherry, Ginny Mitchell, and Sharon Allen) on "Hallelujah" are just..."lush" (and I swear I've never used that word before). Nice to see that the car thread remains (with the title track), and I'm glad to finally have a recording copy of "The Sparrow" (my favorite Sherry original)."

Unkle Sherman, DJ, KPIG

Hallelujah, with the choir kicks backbehind.
Sherry keeps gettin' better and better !

Arden Eaton, KPIG DJ

Sherry's sophomore effort is charming
Drive on Back is a lovely listen.
Sherry’s warm, rich voice sounds full and confident
here.
The songwriting is infused with wistfully bucolic
imagery.
She is blessed with an accompaniment of abundantly
talented players. Of particular note are Jim Lewin’s
oh-so-supple guitar work, and Keith Greeninger’s
gorgeous, intoxicating vocals.
Delightful bits of unexpected instrumentation pop up
here and there (clarinet, tuba, cello), adding charm
to the full arrangements.
Sherry has fine taste in the artists she chooses to
cover. Her female perspective often adds a whole new
dimension to the material she is interpreting.

Oscar Harris

Good choice of songs
Enjoyed all the songs on this CD. Guitar work is refreshing. I love the soul and spirit Sherry displays in her vocals.

Dick Twinney

'Drive by Romance' is good 'Drive on Back' is fantastic
If you enjoy country/folk music, talented musicians, a lovely lady with a great voice, story songs that have meaning, then, Drive on Back, is essential listening.
