IRIS DeMENT 'Lifeline'

IRIS DeMENT 'Lifeline'

  • $15.00


Ms. Dement has not had a record out for several years (perhaps you heard her two marvelous cuts on the Ralph Stanley and Friends album), and she’s never had anything quite like this. We doubt that there’s any way to label Iris—and probably no need to. Suffice it to say hers is a totally unique voice, just dripping with earthy, soulful, rural overtones. This all gospel album will definitely be too “real” for many an ear, but Dement has her own niche following who will simply love her work here. She makes use of simple accompaniments—some just piano, some featuring tasteful work by Mark Howard on guitar, with some vocal harmonies by Alan O’Bryant, Stuart Duncan and Pat Enright. Here treatment of standards like SWEET HOUR OF PRAYER, FILL MY WAY WITH LOVE, THE OLD GOSPEL SHIP and others are so subtly delicate and yet so powerful that it’s scary. Those who admire Ms. Dement’s talent will just love this small label gem.
