The Greencards - Sweetheart Of The Sun

In its eleventh year as a recording and touring band, Australian transplants Kym Warner (mandolin) and Carol Young (bass and vocals) with Guitarist Carl Minor, The Greencards launch U.S. tour in August and release ‘Sweetheart Of The Sun’ The record was made “old school,” with the specific intention of be listened to from start to finish rather than parsed into single-serve song downloads.

‘Sweetheart Of The Sun’ (released 8/20) has a more mellow sound than their previously trio jam based releases. Adding additional musicians, Jedd Hughes on guitar, bouzouki, ukulele and vocals; Kai Welch on guitar, bass, accordion, keys, omnichord and vocals; David Beck on vocals and bass; Paul Cauthen on vocals; Eric Darken on percussion; Aoife O’Donovan on vocals; Jon Randall on vocals; Luke Reynolds on bass and pedal steel guitar; and Andrea Zonn on violin and viola this release has a polished orchestral feel.

Songs such as "Black, Black Water," "Paddle the Torrens," "Ocean Floor," "Ride & Sway," and "Fly" highlight the beautiful arrangements that create a spiritual feel throughout the whole album, which should be listened to in its entirety.
