Carol Markstrom
Mile After Mile

Carol Markstrom continues to reshape her artistic parameters in her new not-all-Western release. Listeners who may have become complacent with Markstrom’s smoother ballad style from her last album may note she occasionally employs a more forceful delivery this time. For me it’s reminiscent of certain protest folk from the sixties. Some complex lyric elements enhance that effect, yet a reasonable flow within the arrangements is generally maintained.

Picks include “Dust Of Palomas” (her writer’s block buster inspired by a blustery day spent there), “Best Time Of The Day” (from a Tim Cox oil seen on an event poster), “Perfect” (which Markstrom calls her ‘song of personal completion’), “Miner’s Candle” (a co-write with Manuela Schneider) and her cover of a Joy Williams/John Paul White/CharliePeacock song “Devil’s Backbone.” Top players including Jon Chandler and Cody Braun add greatly to the effort. Her growing fan base should welcome this one into the fold. Twelve tracks.
