Many female singers that are popular today tend to sing as a soprano. This is true even if they can’t quite claim that high of a range. That’s where auto tune tends to rear it’s ugly, computerized head. Rarely do I find a female singer who embraces the alto within her. I have exciting news: I found her.
I’ve always sung as a soprano, but I am learning alto harmonies every chance I have. My feeble attempts at singing alto pale in comparison to this woman’s wonderful voice. She’s one of three vocalists for the band. Six musicians make up Flatt Lonesome, a relatively new bluegrass band with a country and gospel kick.
To add icing to this cake, not only can she (and her sister) sing, but she plays the mandolin. All three vocalists play an instrument. I’m on a bluegrass kick and this is it folks. The combination of harmonies and variety of instruments including bass, fiddle, mandolin, acoustic guitar, banjo, and a resophonic guitar make this our song of the week.
