Roses Guide to Time Travel
Roses Guide To Time Travel ~ #15 Roots Music Report ~ #20 Folk DJ Radio Chart ~ #22 FAR (Freeform American Roots) Chart ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Rose Rock Records is thrilled to announce the release of Nancy K. Dillon's long anticipated follow-up to her well-received widely acclaimed 2004 debut CD Just Let Me Dream. Roses Guide To Time Travel showcases Dillon's okie-roots authenticity and soulfully intelligent take on Americana music with 11 original songs in her subtle and concise lyrical style. 'The fancy term for Dillon's kind of writing is mythopoeia," says one reviewer. Songs about trains, depot stations and a slightly crumbling industrial landscape share the spotlight with songs of gently aging rockstars and fading beauty. Add a murder ballad ghost story, a paean to Portland OR, lovers dancing among crimson stones in the desert and some old-fashioned tornado-chasing and you begin get a sense of what Roses Guide To Time Travel is about. Musical contributions made on both sides of the Pond include Danny Barnes (Bad Livers), Grammy award-winner Stacy Phillips on Dobro, Gavin Sutherland (Sutherland Brothers & Quiver), Steve Smith (Hard Road), Chris Parks (Any Trouble), Ian Lang & MJ Bishop. Recorded by Grammy-winning engineer Garey Shelton (The Believers/Danny O'Keefe) in Seattle along with tracks flown in from Scotland, England, New Mexico & Austin TX. Avant-garde folk/Americana artist Nancy K. Dillon grew up in a musical family on the dusty plains of Oklahoma just 6 blocks from Route 66 and that ribbon of highway and possibility shaped her vision and musical sensibility. Dillon has shared stages with Kevin Welch, Jimmy LaFave, Clive Gregson, Gretchen Peters, Guy Clark, The Everly Brothers, Rachel Harrington & Ray Wylie Hubbard. Release Date ~ March 28 2010 on Rose Rock Records Produced by Michael Hill & Nancy K. Dillon.
