Sarah McCully

Album Title: Virtue
Release Date: 2006
Genre: Rock/Country
The opening strains of Sarah McCully's Virtue are beautiful and could never be described as anything but. Delicately picked acoustic guitar and layered vocals kick off the record and they also carry it to an end, lonesome ballads filling up the middle. It's clear that more than one genre has influenced McCully's music, but it's in the twang of the banjo and the whine of the slide guitar that Virtue finds its soul. Not just merely pretty sounding, McCully uses her voice to do more than carry a melody. McCully was involved in a head-on collision that left her immobile for a year, and it's obvious she had time to do some deep thinking during that time. Confident and wickedly strong, McCully's lyrics beg the listener to become the same. "Integrity written on a sign/Comprehension dies in young minds," she sings on the title track, "Poison gives freedom to the tied/Virtues torn and bloody at the finish line." Friends, this ain't no vapid country fluff.
