ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Like a Steinbeck epic, Adam and Darcie, have mastered the craft of storytelling. “California Trail,” talks life in a way familiar to all who listen to it, evoking a comfortable sense of nostalgia and daydream, as one journeys down the track list. A worthy and triumphant follow-up to their debut record, “The Valley Where I’m From,” the new addition features a range and depth of instrumentation and vocals that honestly paints a landscape of the couples’ sense of community, and the love for one another that carries the music.

The group on any given day is a tight-knit assemblage of friends, augmenting a chemistry between Adam and Darcie that is truly unique, but could be likened to a project of Brian Wilson on a good day. Friends from multiple other musical projects in the Utah Valley area, as well as Portland, OR join the two adding a capacity that fleshes out the vision that Adam, and wife Darcie, have so masterfully articulated.

“California Trail,” brings a personal and sincere commitment to contemplative resolution, and musical sincerity, that most have written off as cliché—that is, until they listen to Adam and Darcie.

Gentle folk infused country
If you are a fan of dreamy folk/country music dashed with a bit of pop then you are bound to love the new album by husband and wife duo Adam and Darcie. Layered harmonies suggest that their musical style is something of a throw back to the sixties. A collection of the duo’s friends join them on this top class album adding harmony vocals and playing a range of instruments. This album stands out because it was recorded with little studio interference and polishing. Adam and Darcie effortlessly bring their lyrics to life, never over doing the backing music or production. The album begins with a fine opening number entitled The Fox, Hare and Doe, a gentle dreamy song with mesmerising harmonies reminiscent in style of the Fleet Foxes. The musical backing is unobtrusive allowing Adam and Darcie’s vocals to shine brightly. Never Been A Pilot has a catchy melody and follows on a similar vain from the opening number. Hand/Mind is a slightly more upbeat number but it still manages to retain its dream like qualities. I Need To Let Go Of What I Won’t Miss is a charming gentle song. Listening to it evokes memories of a warm summer’s day. Nowhere, No One features some wonderfully traditional instrumentation. All I Ever Do Is Fall is one of the stand out songs on the album. The gentle flowing harmonies instantly bring to mind the hit group the Mammas and Pappas. Before It’s Better sees Darcie on lead vocals. She has an outstanding voice, which is a delight to listen to. The title number California Trail is yet another dreamy number. Grass Valley has a gentle feel about it. Once again the music and vocals are very evocative. The whole album speaks of warmth and love. This is music that makes you feel good deep inside and lights up even the darkest of days. This is a well crafted album that speaks volumes for the talents of Adam and Darcie.
