Renee Wahl “From Here To There” – Listen

There’s something not going quite right on Renee Wahl’s roadtrip, captured on ‘From Here To There‘, taken from her new album ‘Cut To The Bonewhich is out on the ides of March.  She’s thinking about love and how it doesn’t always work out the way it seems it could do “the prettiest black-haired blue eyed boy I’d ever seen / how we tried, how we tried“.  And now there’s nothing to be done but head out alone and  “drive drive drive drive drive / and the highway it rolls on and the wind and the wild birds sing their own sweet song“.  There’s an extra edge and a lonesome shiver given to the song by the echoey guitar of Stuart Mathis.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
