Steppin' In It + The Wiyos
Steppin' In It-
Rare indeed when a collection of songs creates an entire world. Yet thats exactly what transpires with Steppin In Its "Simple Tunes for Troubled Times." Sonically painting with a pleasant array of old time country swing and blues, this Lansing, Michigan, quartet brilliantly updates a resurging American musical genre. Populating this 11-track collection is an aging riverboat, the ghost of Richard Manuel, innocent love, dreams that are dashed, and the struggle of the common man. Its a world Woody Guthrie knew about, and sang about. Steppin In It conveys the wonder of the American spirit, but also its heartache. Led by composer/guitarist Joshua Davis, traditional roots music is celebrated here by plaintive vocals and sweet harmonies, plus musicianship that is positively staggering. The number of instruments manned by Davis, upright bassist Dominic John Suchyta, steel guitarist Joe Wilson and the harmonica-playing Andy Wilson includes trombone, trumpet, Cajun accordion, dobro, slide guitar, Cajun fiddle, clawhammer banjo. Even rarer, though their competence on these instruments is clearly superior, there is little, if any, soloing taking place. All four musicians play to support the essence of the song. A true ensemble, their wonderful arrangements take us on a rich journey through the jaunty "Give My Regards to Miss Moline," the Texas swing of "Hittin on All Six," the laid-back "Wrens Lul-la-by," the true-blue "The Long Haul," and my fave, "Washtenaw County." Though mostly originals, theres also a rollicking version of Randy Newmans "Mr. President (Have Pity on the Working Man)." These artists earn my vote for band of the year.

The Wiyos-
In their five-year lifespan, The Wiyos have driven over 400,000 miles in seven countries and played over a thousand shows. They have released three full-length albums, seamlessly blending their original songwriting with a wide spectrum of vernacular American music. The New Yorker says "the group brings exuberance and intensity to these vintage styles, and its performances are layered with vaudevillian stage antics." Originally an acoustic trio, they are now a quartet broadening their sonic palette. They have built a reputation for riveting live performances. Americana UK reports that "their musicianship is outstanding", and Sing Out calls them "tons of fun".
