"Take a Picture of Me" by Nancy McCallion (Folk Artist from Arizona(AZ))

"Take a Picture of Me" is the latest album from Nancy McCallion. It's a wonderful collection of easy listening folk/rock songs that is inspired by the recent economic recession and its difficult effect upon the lives of the American poor. "Clydes Bonny Banks" is a beautiful and leisurely folk number that has just a hint of a Celtic sound, in which McCallion sings with crisp and clean vocal clarity. Another highlight, "Good Old Days," is a see-sawing folk song with a little bit of a honky-tonk influence that will get you tapping your toes with its bouncy beat and rootsy lyrics. "Cruel Thing" is a song in which we hear McCallion sing with an edgier style in more of a rocking folk song as the steady drums and power chords of the guitar compliment her voice. This album is a wonderful example of contemporary folk/rock music, which takes influences from many genres, yet always resulting in an excellent American-folk sound. If you think you would like to take in a folk/rock reaction to the recent economic recession which has affected us all, then take a listen to "Take a Picture of Me" by Nancy McCallion as you will be thoroughly pleased by this collection of folk/rock songs.
