Rock House Concert featuring Barak Hill's "Mid-American" album release

The Rock House, 41 High Street, Reeds Spring

Award winning singer-songwriter Barak Hill has finished his fifth full-length album. A collection of ten original songs that Barak considers to be among the best he's ever written are brought to life with the help of a talented group of studio musicians. Dave Anderson (guitar), Molly Healey (violin and cello), Kristi Meredith (vocals), and Donnie Kraft (upright bass) add texture and color to Barak's solid guitar and soulful vocals. Arrangements are sparse and instrumentation is used sparingly to leave the songs plenty of room to breath. The album is warm and intimate. In the end, the focus is always on the lyrics. Plain-spoken and to-the-point, Barak writes with an honest ear and a thoughtful tone. His brand of Americana is one of heartache, but always with a fistful of hope that things might work out yet.

Mid-Americana would not sound out of place played next to albums by Gillian Welch, Ordinary Elephant, Amos Lee, or Josh Ritter.

“Where Hill excels, and so few of his contemporaries do, is in making silence and pause into storytelling devices unto themselves...Hill’s lyrical approach is economical and plain-spoken, the words of everyman. But they’re delivered with the careful pacing and assuredness of a man who knows the impact he wants and how to get it. It’s this sense of when not to sing or even play that lends the songs a gravitas they could lose in the hands of someone else.” — Chris DeRosier, TAG Magazine
