BRIGITTE DEMEYER & WILL KIMBROUGH, Mockingbird Soul (BDM): 3 STARS
Nashville denizens DeMeyer and Kimbrough keep it simple on this modest “acoustic soul” outing, their warm vocal chemistry primarily accompanied only by Kimbrough’s guitar. The resulting living-room vibe complements DeMeyer’s sultry vocal style as well as Kimbrough’s expressive fretwork, and allows the midtempo, soul- and gospel-veined songs to breathe. Highlights include the slow-grooving title track, the New Orleans-inspired “The Juke” and “Little Easy,” “Carpet Bagger’s Lullaby.” Recommended for fans of Patty Griffin, Buddy & Julie Miller.
