About this item

Recorded in a remote rural studio in England, the album captures the fantastically tight band that toured most of the summer festivals last year, produced by her husband the formidable guitarist and songwriter Paul Curreri, and featuring the pedal-steel playing of the legendary BJ Cole. The great Jesse Winchester, a fellow Southerner (and hero of Sproule's), also makes a cameo appearance. Continuing in the tradition of her previous works, "Don't Hurry For Heaven" sports a variety of sonic influences. Sproule's youthfulness and romantic sense of humour are deepened by a hurling undercurrent of musical ambition and multi-genre awareness - amongst her own jazzy country songs, Sproule and Curreri even duet on a left-field, desert-bluesy version of Black Uhuru's "Sponji Reggae". Her effortless delivery of a deceptively complex melody, or her charmingly badass guitar work, give out an infectious vitality that simply enthrals.
