Let the Storm Roll in
The 12 self-penned songs in this collection are beautifully showcased through the talents of musicians that include Colin Linden of Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, legendary session player Charlie McCoy on harmonica, grammy winners Andy Reiss and Jeff Taylor of the Time Jumpers, multi-instrumentalist Fats Kaplan of Kane, Welch, & Kaplan, plus Telecaster genius Redd Volkaert, dobro virtuoso Randy Khors, and frequent Prairie Home Companion steel favorite Cindy Cashdollar. The rhythm section is made up of Johnny Cash sideman Dave Roe on doghouse bass, and Rick Lonow on percussion. It also includes a passionate duet with Lennie Gallant, who has won 14 awards from the Canadian East Coast Music Association including male artist of the year and album of the year. REVIEWS: 'The immigration saga that accompanies "Big Country" and the naiveté of youth recalled in "J.C." are relayed from both a tender and touching perspective. Yet Nygaard's also got a scrappy side to her as well. Her sympathetic homage to Miss Kitty of TV's "Gunsmoke" fame is absolutely hilarious and her plea to a reticent lover in the song simply titled "Say It" conveys both desperation and desire without resorting to self-pity. Nygaard is a knowing soul and Let The Storm Roll In offers a torrent of wisdom and reflection.' Lee Zimmerman, No Depression Magazine 'Self-produced, with hand-selected songs from her vast catalog, Nygaard may have quite accidentally created and released one of the finest singer/songwriter/storyteller collections in recent memory...'His Left Side' is utterly brilliant.' Wildy Haskell - Wildy's World 'How warm and sensual her voice can sound... After this great album, we are all eagerly awaiting a successor.'Blowfish (Yvo Zels) - Rootstime. BeBlowfish (Yvo Zels) - Rootstime. Be 'Claudia Nygaard has the depth of soul one would expect from a full grown woman. No little girl voice (so popular in music today) on this album. Good, honest songwriting, displaying both humor and wisdom, with all around great performances.'
