The duo of Steve Hussey and Jake Eddy’s nine-song album,Â The Miller Girl, features some strong picking and strumming on well-written tunes. â€œLittle Shoveâ€ opens, built around a roiling banjo and Steveâ€™s low vocals, while â€œInto the Ether,â€ one of the best songs here, is made from a strong-strummed acoustic and Husseyâ€™s sexy, almost breathy verse delivery. The tickle of Eddyâ€™s vocals and banjo plucking rounds it all out into a very memorable piece. These two men work perfectly in sync with one another throughout the album, as is evident even this early in the proceedings. I liked the flicky, acoustic rhythm of â€œMaster Your Mind. ” As it chunks along, it builds even more dangerously, with some wild dobro playing from Eddy. (This boy certainly can play!) The title track is a sweet acoustic tune, again with just the right touch of banjo and mandolin behind Husseyâ€™s longing-for-a-girl lyrics and the tickle of harmony vocals in the chorus sets this one off as another gem here. The fiddle is perfectly placed as well and is featured on the last trio of tunes here: the soft and sweet â€œBetter Day,â€ the swirling in and around â€œI Pick Youâ€ (another great vocal here from Hussey), and the sad â€œSweet.â€ As these are love songs of one stripe or another, might one suspect whatâ€™s on Husseyâ€™s mind presently. Steve Hussey and Jake Eddyâ€™s The Miller Girl is acoustic music done right. You’re gonna like this one for sure!
