Track Premiere – JD And The Straight Shot “Invisible”

The new album from JD and the Straight Shot is called ‘The Great Divide‘, and saw the band convening at Nashville’s Sound Stage Studios for an all acoustic recording.  JD is Jim Dolan and he leads a band of friends who have all had wide and varied musical careers outside the band – playing with the likes of B.B. King, Robert Plant, Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, Levon Helm, and Miranda Lambert amongst many others.  When they get together as JD and the Straight Shot they like to concentrate on songs with a story tell.

Songs such as  today’s premiere ‘Invisible‘ about which Jim Dolan has said “The song’s feeling is as if you are the only two people alive… Invisible to all but each other.”  It’s easy to hear the inspirations that have influenced the band such as Fleetwood Mac, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and the Civil Wars.  JD & The Straight Shot delivers a sweet sound and strong songwriting with, on these acoustic recordings, even more attention paid to the rich multi-part harmonies.

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?
