Land of Milk and Honey
Her songwriting has a Dylanesque quality as her tunes burst with edgy lyrics and poetic imagination. With a knowing eye on the past, Eliza Gilkyson is making folk music for the 21st Century, and it's a delightful thing to hear
Land of Milk and Honey is decidedly socio/political in nature, from the Iraq war awareness plea, "Hiway 9", to the call for peace in Woody Guthrie's previously unrecorded and timely peace anthem, "Peace Call", Gilkyson doesn't pull any punches. "This is music for a generation that won't stand idly by while its vision for improving the quality of life on earth seems ever clouded by a dust-storm of politics, power, greed and global unrest," notes Gilkyson.
