The Civil Wars – Barton Hollow Review


After the song “Poison And Wine” featured in the hit US show Grey’s Anatomy, everyone wanted to know more about this Folk/Country/Americana Duo, and you can easily hear why.

Joy Williams and partner John Paul White are like strawberries and cream; Perfect together. Their vocal styles blend beautifully and the whole musical relationship feels like complete synchronicity.

Every song on this album is a masterpiece of its genre. Its simple, honest and thoughtful.

“Barton Hollow” the title track is a great up tempo bluesy number and “Falling” is one of the best Ballads I’ve heard in a long time.

I think The Civil Wars have set the bar high with this one, and I look forward to hearing what comes next.
