Sara Watkins: Sometimes I’m Loving You Too Much (live from the Violin Shop in (nashville) Bellevue, Tennessee)

”Sara Watkins’ debut is new and refreshing; it is a blending of retro flavors that remains contemporary, while avoiding the manufactured nostalgia that so often creeps into both Nashville and alt-country music.” Country Universe/William Ward

”So what kind of album is it? It’s very country-bluegrass, in the vein of Nickel Creek’s first album, Nickel Creek. It also has this relaxed feel, and a kind of throwback vibe, such as on “Any Old Time”. It also just feels effortless and natural, and it’s very calming to listen to. She also has a few instrumentals, “Freiderick” and “Jefferson” where she shows off her fiddle playing, and she is very entertaining. Beyond that, her vocals are very evocative, as usual, and she comes off assured.” My Kind of Country/Chris

”Recorded in Nashville and Los Angeles, the album was produced by Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones, whose recent production credits also include an album with all-female string band Uncle Earl. Jones excels at deriving a unified, warmly unassuming sound from a large all-star cast, which also includes Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, Tom Petty keyboardist Benmont Tench, and Elvis Costello drummer Pete Thomas. The evidence here suggests that they, too, were charmed by Watkins’ preternatural charm” No Depression
