All Hearts - Troubaduo

Troubaduo is making a name for themselves as they write, record, and perform quality material. These golden state-ers write pop-rock with a rootys/americana bent.

Tracks like, What's Really You, feature Jill's vocals cutting a more soulful rug. On Houdini, the band works and succeeds in an almost big-band, 1940's era track. Houdini is a perfect track, mixed exceedingly well and instrumentally impressive - easily their best! On Show Me, Jill's vocals again take on a more clearly soulful attack. Its a hooky track with some great electric guitar tones.

Overall, Troubaduo writes well and displays a nice understanding of the genre.

RATING: 3.5 of 5 stars
