Album Notes
What Goethe claimed once again? Right, yeah ... "Only in moderation is the master revealed." On "Lilac Sky," Boston singer-songwriter Thea Hopkins has chosen to release a modest number of songs instead of a long CD filled to the brim with a lot of chaff among the wheat. Each of these songs absolutely must be heard.

Recorded at Q Division, Thea's new 6 song EP "Lilac Sky" departs from the contemporary folk approach that marked her first two albums. The rip-it-up sound is also a change from the topical balladry that inspired Peter, Paul & Mary to record Thea's work. (Her song "Jesus Is On The Wire" was recorded by P, P & M in both 2004 and 2010. ) "Lilac Sky" features pianist Tim Ray (Lyle Lovett), guitarist Peter Parcek (Blues Foundation Award nominee), drummer Mike Piehl (Chris Smither, Peter Wolf) and bassist Paul Kochanski (The Swinging Steaks). Four of the songs are sparked by substantial contributions from Thea's current guitarist/mandola player, Andy Hollinger, and former guitarist Cameron Peterson. Country-rock singer/songwriter Susan Cattaneo adds harmony vocals.
