Possessing one of the most expressive voices in Country Music, Tia McGraff is at her peak on her newest album, Crazy Beautiful. With songs that blur the lines between Pop-Folk and Alt-Country, it wonderfully mixes both into a beautiful sound.
It contains a well-balanced collection of rockin' hooks, mid-tempo foot tappers and tender ballads. The excitement and wonder just oozes out of the speakers.
A few local and international musicians join in. Tommy Parham, Dave Sanger of Asleep At The Wheel, Tommy Harden, Dave Labruyere.Andrew Aldridge, Alfonso Spoto of the Acoustics, Mary-Jane Russell and Jonathan Edwards are all out in full force. It's all engineers by the legendary Nick Blagona.
The CD is available at cdbaby (also as a download) or through her website.

Some albums escape our radar, so occasionally we'll be catching up with some mini-reviews!
2010's Diversity boats a number of amazing storytelling songs enhanced by her distinct vocals. Lyrically, it veers from politics, love, motivation and all points in between. This is a wonderful album!
