Read an exclusive interview with Uprooted Music Review and No Depression, here.

"As he is one of the hottest mandolin players on the scene today, it would be easy to focus on Flinner’s fleet fingered delivery, but this is a true collective effort. Ross Martin (acoustic guitar) and Eric Thorin (acoustic bass) play virtually equal roles as songwriting contributors and performers. The roles of lead, rhythm and melody are shared and interchanged liberally, making it impossible for ears to pick a true leader. Since these songs weren’t noodled on for long, they sound fresh, with a certain degree of complexity that didn’t have time to get too complex." - All About Jazz

" The music is guaranteed to be fresh and invigorating – with new tunes constantly taking shape, there is no way Flinner, Martin, and Thorin can get stale, and the spontaneity and zeal of these new songs is very much alive on Winter Harvest.  Bluegrass, folk, jazz, and international flavors blend splendidly.  Highlights include the disc opener, “Raji’s Romp,” the somber “Bitterroot,” and the easily whimsical “The Stumbling Bro.”" - Honest Tune

 

Purchase This LIfe - Susan GreenbaumSusan Greenbaum - This Life

 

Susan Greenbaum is one of the most intelligent and literate songwriters to emerge in recent years. Insightful lyrics coupled with her powerful yet nimble vocals make hers a voice poised for national attention.

On THIS LIFE, her first nationally distributed release, Susan delivers a set of 12 catchy originals as striking for their lyric depth and smart turns of phrase as their harmonic sophistication. Stand out tracks include the certain-to-be-covered “Big”, the emotionally-charged “This Life”, a letter in song to her brother whose untimely passing inspired her career change, and “Here I Go”, an uplifting gospel song featuring the Nashville-based gospel quartet, The Settles Connection. Throughout the album, Susan is accompanied by some of Nashville’s finest players including guitarist George Marinelli (Bonnie Raitt), Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Mark T Jordon (piano) and bassists Alison Prestwood (Shawn Colvin) and Todd Phillips (Joan Baez).
