Rock Ridge – “Drifter’s Prayer” [Self-produced]

Sally Goodin   4/2/2015   CD, Country, Format

Rock Ridge is a 4-piece bluegrass band – guitar, bass, banjo, and mandolin, based in the Chico area. This is their debut album, from 2011, which is self-produced. It includes traditional and contemporary bluegrass, gospel, and some originals. The singing and playing are good; it is well produced. The female lead is especially good.?? Reviewed by Sally Goodin

Cross, Amber – “You Can Come In” – [Self-produced]

Sally Goodin   4/2/2015   A Library

Amber Cross is a singer/songwriter and plays guitar. This is her debut album and it is really fine. She wrote all but one of the songs on the album. The arrangements are sparse, with different combinations of (mostly) acoustic instruments. Her songs are about her life, but she writes in a way that make them so accessible that you can relate to what she says.?? Reviewed by Sally Goodin
