For her debut album “Ditch the Map” Country singer-songwriter Heather Meuleman teamed up with the Pan Handles to bring roots-deep blues-soaked Country Folk which offers accessible archaic tones.
The standout single “To the Sea” starts off with sombrely arrestive prelude before progressing into a restoratively rhythmic offering of swampy Blues complete with striking finger-picked guitar notes.
Heather Meuleman didn’t set out to revolutionise the rhythms and introspective-deep style of Country with To the Sea, instead, she revived the genre with her uniquely nuanced vocals which don’t fail to bring plenty of resonant emotion to the soundscape.
