Bill Kirchen – Word to the Wise

NAME: Bill Kirchen
ALBUM: Word to the Wise
DATE: 6July2010

LABEL: Proper Records


FIVE WORD REVIEW: Almost archaic country blues album

LOCATION: Austin, Texas

LINE UP: Band Members: Bill Kirchen: Guitars, Vocals / Jack O’Dell: Drums, Vocals / Johnny Castle: bass / Austin de Lone: Keys

WHAT’S THE STORY?: With a variety of guest musicians including Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe, Maria Muldaur, Paul Carrack, Dan Hicks and many more, Word to the Wise is a bluegrass album made by the best of the best in this field. The album can be very engaging and imaginative, yet also lean towards the boring end of the country-blues spectrum. There are a few select songs which really hit the spot but I can’t say much for the rest.

SOUNDS LIKE: Blues Brothers; Willie Nelson; the Deep South; Marcus Bonfanti; Ennio Morricone

YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF: Country bluegrass music; the soundtracks to Westerns
