Bob Hardy, A Deeper Blue, The Life and Music of Townes Van Zandt
Townes Van Zandt’s “White Freightliner Blues” in a minor key makes perfect sense when performed by Bianca DeLeon, once Townes’ close confidant, now carrying on his tradition of mixing the darkness and the light in her songs of love and loss, innocence and experience, with the emphasis now firmly on experience.
A world-weary cover of Hank Williams’ “I Heard That Lonesome Whistle Blow” marks the other boundary of Bianca’s territory, conveying strength and resolution along with the resignation of hard-fought experience.
In between, her latest songs continue to weave the threads of the stories her followers have come to love. This is solid songwriting and a voice that gets better with age–and experience.
Amazon Editorial Review
“White Freightliner” just came on, and I m knocked out; I got chills. So great; your voice is amazing, cuts to the bone. I wanna tell you: wow. Bob Hardy, A Deeper Blue, The Life and Music of Townes Van Zandt
This cd runs from the darkest depths to the gentle humor of “Let’s Put the Dirty Back in Dancin'”. The title song details a mystery that took place in the Mexican desert many years previous and is kept hidden in the past with oblique references.
This cd, her 5th, is a must have for Bianca fans.
