Diana Upton Hill Interview by Christian Lamitschka for Country Music News International Magazine

Diana Upton Hill Interview by Christian Lamitschka for Country Music News International Magazine 

CD: THE KNIGHT FAMILY - The Bluegrass-Gospel Album

THE KNIGHT FAMILY
The Bluegrass-Gospel Album
Hallelujah Kinda Day - It Is Better Farther On - Are You Afraid To Die - Lead Someone To You - Vision of Jacob's Ladder - Lord Bless Me On - Before I Wake - Thank God For The Lillies - There's A Bright Star Somewhere - Dying
To Meet You
 
This incredible bluegrass-gospel family band from Fall Branch, Tennessee, was awarded the "Vintage Gospel CD of the Year" last year at LeMars, Iowa, for their CD "Armed & Ready."  This new CD is a remarkable re-invention of their incredible gift of music.  This family has devoted their energies and abilities to the Lord Jesus Christ in all they do. The second song on this one "It Is Better Farther On" is one of those close-harmony songs that only families can do, and in this case acapella, meaning without musical instruments.  They play the 'normal' instruments of bluegrass music, but their gospel music really excels on this very likable CD.   They also offer several other acapella numbers, "Vision Of Jacob's Ladder" another remarkable presentation of true faith and a sincere dedication to the Lord Jesus Christ. If you like 'bluegrass' music you will love the Knight Family.  The banjo does not however, take center stage constantly as much of bluegrass does portray.  Rather it is a very nice complimentary musical instrument presentation, a combination that works very well for this wonderful family that is keeping alive the very 'heart' of gospel music.  This down-home honest and sincere music, is truly enjoyable to not only listen to, but to obviously know they too, are also enjoying creating this wonderful music very much.  This CD of course is going to the Rural Roots Music Commission.   I know they have not received any other applications from any other group that would qualify as 'vintage gospel,' so my hopes are high for the Knight Family.  You will enjoy, as I do, the many variations of the music instruments they play.  Fiddle, banjo, Dobro, mandolin, guitar, acoustic bass (the tempo and acoustic sound here is explicit and sounds wonderful). Recorded in Knoxville and Bristol, Tennessee, it is a special adventure to return to Bristol, the home of the big-bang of country music, where Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family made their first recordings in this same town.  Much congratulations to the Knight Family, of Tennessee, for a wonderful job well done on this truly inspiring gospel CD.

CD: A. P. MAURO - Rainmakers

 A. P. MAURO
Rainmakers
You're A Rainmaker - She Dances With My Heart - These Chains - Lonesome Highways - Two By Two - Urban Outlaw
 
This is not a 'country' album, or a review of a country album.  It's rock and roll, and quite frankly, after some consideration, it could be called 'country' by today's qualifications.  His voice is way too far down in the mix to be really understandable, but it is a very interesting collection of original songs.  I appreciate the thoughts and incredible dedication and hard work each and every original song must have, to become even slightly known.  They are all like 'children' and they will never ever not be a part of the one who created them.  In the music world, lots of children are stolen away.  Someone else either takes the entire creation, calling it their own, or the composer is cheated out of his creation by an unscrupulous publishing company or recording company.  A. P. Mauro, however has his very valid stamp on these five songs, and what he is writing about is 'today.'  I can see no relationship the record label, Lamon Records, has placed in their description of what Mr. Mauro is writing, calling it Country-Americana.  Country-Rock yes, but even Americana can not take this fledgling work as their own.  Even 'country' as the descriptive term for a musical genre today, is so far removed, that as Blake Shelton called me an old fart and jackass because I don't buy his records because it isn't 'country' enough.  I leave this as it's own statement.  Fiddles, steel guitars, acoustic guitars, banjos, and like minded instruments created a musical genre called country.  That does not exist in the so-called 'country' music of today, so therefore how can it be called the same name.  Mostly this is a theft experience.  Mr. Mauro however, is his own man, writing songs that reflect his views on the world today, especially politics.  "You're A Rainmaker" is a cynical commentary about politicians and presidential candidates.  When pressed to name names, the elusive Mr. Mauro said, "I think songs touch us in personal ways and some are best left to our own imagination.  A song is special when we can relate to it, and that's what's important."  I definitely agree, however in that first song I see both Clinton and Trump.  Wow, how the times have changed.  Sony is distributing this well done production.  I'll leave it to the more knowable of those in rock and protest music to make the final judgements.
