Roys in a one word description are "refreshing". The
brother and sister team have uncanny harmonies which
only siblings can produce. There's something special
about family members singing together. They have
written almost every song on this album. They just
sing on this disc and leave the music to studio
musicians Mark Fain is on Bass/Dan Electro, Justin
Moses on banjo, Randy Kohrs plays Dobro, Cody Kilby
on acoustic guitars, Steve Brewster takes drums and
Andy Leftwich plays mandolin, fiddle and bouzouki.
Lee and Elaine must be excellent players also as
they have some very good sponsors for guitars,
mandolin, and strings.
"Coal Minin' Man", The first single from the CD,
tells the story of a, you guessed it, coal minin'
man. A song about one of America's oldest and most
dangerous professions. I really like this song as it
is up beat and has a really good melody with those
great bluegrass harmonies.
My favorite song off of the CD is "I Wonder What
God's Thinking". This song is very inspirational and
some nice smooth Dobro. Once again, their harmonies
are emotional as they really put themselves into the
songs they present.
Their first Rural Rhythm CD features eleven modern
sounding, refreshing songs, built on a traditional
blend of acoustic, bluegrass instrumentation.
