More Info:

'Northern California's The Old Way is an acoustic Americana/bluegrass duo that has songs so beautiful you won't even know what to do with yourself.' - Alex De Vore, Santa Fe Reporter The 9 tracks from this debut recording are the result of a purely collaborative and inspired songwriting process of The Old Way. The Old Way has carved out their repertoire from a process of slow distillation, fueled by the experience of inhabiting the farthest Western edge of the continental U.S. over the past several years. The music on this album was recorded in July 2012, on the cliffs of Mendocino County, California, overlooking the abyss. Engineered by the expert ears of Calvin Turnbull, the record is a finely honed musical snapshot of the duo at one moment in time. Album artwork for this release was created by the wonderfully skilled Portland based visual artist, Ben Dewey. The songs on the CD are a vivid selection of the deeply honest repertoire of The Old Way, patiently manifested through arduous and genuine collaboration of the couple, and recorded with glorious subtlety and detail. The Old Way is Irena and Joshua Smith - Vocals and guitar. All songs by The Old Way.
