Red Moon Road

Sorrows and Glories

Red Moon Road’s new album Sorrows and Glories is a folk/roots album that is equally delightful and mighty. Their first track 'Beauty In These Broken Bones’ starts the album off strong, blasting forth full of soul. Sheena’s explosively powerful vocals are undeniably robust and beautiful.

Throughout the album she also shows a softer side with such flawless dynamic and melodic range. The compositions throughout the album are very well thought out and cohesive, many sounding like they have forever existed. The melodies are very catchy and lovely. In every tune the instrumentation is super tight, all the musicians play remarkably.

The recording quality is outstanding, very professional and satisfying to the ears. Absolutely charming stories throughout the entire album, most notably in the tune ‘Sophie Blanchard 1778’. The mandolin tenderly chirps throughout the whole album in tunes of memories past. Red Moon Road brings to the table an immaculate sounding folk album containing performances that are honestly pristine and impressive.
