Lolene''s "Everything You Are"
Review By: Larry Simpson
KOCR, Fort Worth, Texas
Many people said that Lolene would have a difficult time producing another album as strong as her debut effort, "Lonely Dealin''s." However, Lolene has done just that, and more. Her new album, "Everything You Are" is truly outstanding in every respect. The songs, the music, the overall presentation, and, yes, Lolene''s powerful singing have surpassed every expectation. "Everything You Are" establishes Lolene as a legitimate future country music star.
In making "Lonely Dealin''s," Lolene recognized the musical brilliance of Danny Parks [Sessions Leader and Guitars], and Lolene and Parks understood how well they worked together. That is why Lolene insisted that Parks produce her new album. The result is self-evident; Parks and Lolene are a formidable team.
Lolene selected eleven songs for "Everything You Are" which describe how a bold, impulsive, lonely young woman seeks, finds, and transforms her relationships from impersonal casual encounters into a mature, enduring love. "Everything You Are" features tunes by such notable country music stars and established writers as Gail Davies, Rich Wayland, Gilles Godard, Pat McLaughlin, and Bill LaBounty. Lolene''s powerful and emotional vocals transform these wonderful songs into an honest collection that work together to amplify the messages of the individual songs.
Lolene weaves these songs into a story of love, a love that endures and strengthens as the lovers confront life''s many triumphs and disappointments. It is clear that Lolene shares her personal sorrow and joy through this tapestry of song. However, the threads in this fabric have many owners. Lolene''s emotive style allows a listener to experience this journey on a very personal level. The album''s title, "Everything You Are" appropriately captures this album''s universal appeal.
Musically, the production of "Everything You Are" is characteristic of the talent and expertise of session guitarist and producer Danny Parks (Amazing Rhythm Aces) and a select group of Nashville session mainstays supported by backup vocalists and recording engineers assembled by Parks. The players in addition to Parks (guitars, mandolin, and dobro) include Dennis Wage (Keyboards), Michael Johnson (Pedal Steel), David Hungate (Bass), and Owen Hale (Drums). Backup vocalists are Tammy Pierce, Kim Parent, Ray Barnette, and Bill LaBounty.
It is difficult to pick just one or two songs from this album as significantly better than the others. Each song is well written, emotionally sung, and powerfully presented. However, my favourites include A Life Less Ordinary, Let Me Love You, Everything You Are, and You Rock. However, this eleven-song collection works together to amplify the message of the individual songs.
"Everything You Are" is a wonderful album that successfully blends the heartfelt elements of traditional country music with a presentation that will appeal to a broad base of music fans. This album is necessary addition to any serious country music collection. For more information about Lolene, and her music please visit her website, https://www.tradebit.com.
