Ogden Heart debuts in the UK with a glorious review from award winning journalist Alan Cackett!

Ogden Heart awoke to an amazing review by Alan Cackett on .

He is the 47th Member of the British Country Music Hall of Fame and the recipient of the 2008 CMA Wesley Rose Media Award ! Here are some of the Highlights!

"The perfect mix of skill and energy to keep you hooked from start to finish, this is a collection of deeply intimate songs where a rich folk and country template sees bluegrass and roots flavouring with splendid, calculated precision. Brimming with a down home sensibility and thoughtful, poignant lyrics, it beautifully explores every nook and cranny of Americana, country, gospel and bluegrass. Ogden Heart forge their own path that feels wholly original ... an act and album worth seeking out."

"Backwoods Sound, with lyrics by Izzy and music by Katherine, is constructed with a painterly touch, as both lyrically and musically, it captures the pure essence of what makes bluegrass music so special. Thriving on feelings that have manifested from a lifetime of absorbing the music, Izzy comes up with the near-perfect descript of bluegrass with ‘the Mona Lisa on a dirt road.’ Handling most of the lead vocals, her subtlety might perhaps escape some folks, but those who listen closely may hear what I hear, the only person who’s come close to what Alison Krauss does."

"They close the album with Katherine’s The Bye And Bye, a sensitive lyrical piece about her late father, Dr. William Singleton Ogden. Just beneath the shadows of death and the ravages of suffering lie glimmers of light that shine sometimes with blinding force and sometimes with flickering uncertainty. We all face moments when we gaze into the darkness, hoping we can see these rays of light, searching for the balance between these forces in our souls and bodies. This song captures those moments perfectly with inspiring positivity."

We send our heartfelt gratitude to Alan Cackett!!!
