"The Sailor's Daughter" by Chris Holiman (Folk Artist from Arizona(AZ))

Chris Holiman's most recent album is "The Sailor's Daughter." It is an album that centers on Holiman's acoustic guitar and vocals and is recorded in what would be considered an Alternative Country or Folk/Pop style. The first track, "Ride Through Sky," is a graceful song in which Chris and his guitar are accompanied by a smooth and serene cello in a song that easily flows with its melodic lyrics. In "Running This World" things get a little quicker paced, as Chris shows us his edgier side in a song that partners with a more upfront percussive section and the added flavor of the exceptional tones of the Hammond B-3 organ. In the title track, "The Sailor's Daughter," we find a more Country like song as an expressive steel guitar gently wails throughout the piece. If you are a fan of acoustic-led, mellifluous music with a Folk/Country leaning then this album might be for you. Fans of Wilco or Richard Buckley would do themselves good to take a listen to Chris Holiman's latest album "The Sailor's Daughter."
