You’ll Get No More of Me — Flatt Lonesome

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.

Loved it? Hated it? Know of something better? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. didn’t find this very engaging, but honestly i don’t evaluate the harmonies etc…! (rather the overall sound, maybe usage of instruments / effect pedals. :)))

    what kind of music did your band make when you were in a band?

    • We covered praise & worship like Matt Maher and folksy alternative like Mumford & Sons. This recording was a bit hard to hear since the different instruments weren’t hooked into a mixer, but I can see where you’re coming from. The official track is on Spotify. Do you listen to bluegrass often, or do you have another genre that you prefer?

      • ok, cool. true, the spotify version sounded better!

        i like some not-so-common indie music, maybe indie pop / post punk / shoegaze etc. but i listen to a lot of CCM & sometimes classical music as well!
