Stranger To My Kin
On Stranger To My Kin Neal and Leandra excel in storytelling and songcraft, etching vignettes that probe life's dark corners...redeeming light rays invariably poke through in their resilient harmonies and unassuming, sneakily catchy melodies.
Neal and Leandra have done it again. This harmonic husband and wife duo, long known for their achingly sweet voices and interpretations of love past and present, have achieved a new level of excellence with Stranger To My Kin. While much of their previous work took the tone of an ingenuenaiveté, combined with a simple grace and a heartfelt affectionStranger takes the path of the hard-travelled prodigal child. A snapshot of the darker side of grace, it is comprised of ten songs which pull deeply at one's emotions.
