ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Storyhill recalls the harmonious interplay of Simon & Garfunkel; the pained, plantive sound of Cat Stevens; and the acoustic juice of the Indigo Girls." -Billboard

Storyhill was an acoustic duo made up of Chris Cunningham and Johnny Hermanson, two singer-songwriters originally from Bozeman, Montana. While the duo no longer performs together regularly, having broken up in 1997, their music lives on with listeners across the country. Soulful, personal lyrics combined with tight harmonies and intricate guitar arrangements define the Storhill sound. Live, they created a striking blend of traditional folk and a progressive attitude towards acoustic music.

To date, the duo has sold over 40,000 copies of their 10 independently released CDs, still averaging over 100 CDs per month 5 years after their final show.

The duo got back together for a pair of reunion shows in the summer of 2001. The performances were recorded, and the resulting 2-disc album, simply titled "Reunion," was released in the fall of 2001.

Currently, both Chris and John are traveling down new musical paths. Chris is recording and performing as a solo singer-songwriter, and John is the lead singer in a power-pop band called Alva Star.

Pär Winberg

the best Storyhill album to date
Storyhill have been around for quite some time. They have given us CD’s with both up and downs in the quality in the past. If I could pick out the best tracks from the backcatalogue of Storyhill and the soloalbums they’ve done it would be a tremendous album. Therefore it’s really fun to hear the new album that is easily their best album to date all through. Musically we’re somewhere between the sweet powerpop of Rembrandts combined with a little more singer songwriter-edge a’la Simon & Garfunkel and William Brothers. Add also a tiny little Nashville vibe and we’re quite ahead. It’s a very good combination and the album is filled with pearls like second out “What Was Wrong” that smells Rembrandts a long way, “Angel” that is a beautiful ballad that smells a Lanois production a long way and the up-tempo track “Soon” with a nice refrain, lovely harmonyvocals and a sweeping steelguitar painting the picture a little bit. All in all – a very pleasant CD, and as I said earlier, the best Storyhill album to date. Easily.

Too Beautiful
This is easily one of the most beautiful albums by anybody in this century or the last. Being compared to the Indigo Girls and Simon & Garfunkle is pretty righteous, but these guys can hold their own. "What Was Wrong" is my favorite cut, but there's not a lemon in the bunch. "Seven Sisters" and "Angel" are particularly awesome and "Worst Enemy" is wry and clever. In fact, there's a lot of wryness and cleverness here. Being an old fart, I can't help but think I detect some resonance from Don McLean, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Jackson Browne. This album is haunting, poignant, upbeat and achingly beautiful. It gets in your head and you have to play it over and over. I'm playing it right now, in fact!
