$15.00 Type Quantity Sail Away is a lovely adventure on a sea of lush lyrics bathed in hypnotic tunes, a pleasure cruise to many musical ports of call.

Home With You is Amy & Adams’ 6th album. This stunning Acoustic Roots & Americana gem is a 12 tune trip on the road we’ve dubbed Eclectic/FolkRock/TinPanAlley/BluesGrass. ! From the yearning I WANT BE HOME WITH YOU (TONIGHT), the romantic innocence of FOR SOMEBODY, cruising to JUST A LITTLE ROAD SONG, the poignant call to sanity POISON, through the New Orleans-esque detour GOING BACK TO MEMPHIS, a lush salute to Nat King’s SMILE, the taste of paradise in HAWAIIAN HOLIDAY, the comic CHATTERBOX, right up to the mournfully stirring RUN JENNIE RUN, Home With You really delivers on so many levels. Like our last 2 critically regarded albums, Amy & Mark Adams- Westin’s luscious vocals, guitars, mandolin, keyboard, and ukes ride atop the spot-on instrumentals of world class players such as: GRAND OLE OPRY, Dolly Parton, Vince Gill, Alan Jackson... mando/fiddler/guitar sideman, TIM CROUCH, ANDY WILLIAMS & TEXAS TENOR drummer RYAN HURN, and BRANSON, MO aces: keyboardist STEVE KUETHER, and RICH BROWN on bass. Again sister MARY ADAMS adds her lovely harmonies and harmonica. For Home With You we are so excited to add Nick Lane, trombonist to stars: Maynard Ferguson, Rod Stewart, Chicago, Joe Bonamassa, Joe Cocker... ! Recorded at STEVE KUETHER’s Panther Creek Studios, the sound of Home With You is at once sumptuous, intimate, stirring, and inviting. Amy & Adams is proud to invite our fans, old and new, to give Home With You a spin and a share with your family & friends. Take Amy & Adams Home With You & Enjoy!
Gone ... aloft joins Amy & Adams’ 4 previous albums in the celebration of the musical journey that rarely repeats itself or rests for long in the same place; theirs and yours. From the Country/Blues/Grassified amble of Gold In Colorado, to the silken intimacy of the whispered Bossa Nova Gone Not Forgotten and the romantic ballad My Sweetest Taste, through the icy jazz combo attack of So Sick Of The Winter, the steel drum Caribbean Buffet I Don’t Want To Work For The Audio King No More, to the soaring orchestral finale Aloft, the writing, the arrangements, the vocals, and the instrumental performances on Gone ... aloft are simply stunning.
These 13 wonderful original songs were brought to life by the same band of exceptionally gifted artists Amy & Adams used on their 4th CD Dancing Through Time: sister Mary Adams, as always, on vocals and harmonica, drummer Ryan Hurn & bassist Rich Brown (one of Branson, MO’s top tier rhythm sections), fiddler, mandolinist, and guitarist extraordinaire (oft Grand Ole Opry sideman) Tim Crouch, and the impeccable Steve Kuether on 7’ grand piano, Hammond B3, accordion, and synth keys.
Recorded at Steve’s Panther Creek studio in the Arkansas Ozarks, Gone ... aloft sounds great on your iPod, or in your car. If you’re lucky enough to own a fine audio or home theater system you can have Amy & Adams & Band right in your own living room.
Gone ... aloft was a fulfilling musical journey for us. We hope it will be for you too.
OKAY TODAY recording artists Amy & Adams fourth CD Dancing Through Time is another sumptuous Eclectic/FolkRock/TinPan Alley/ BluesGrass journey filled with 10 stunning original songs and 1 vintage standard sung superbly by Amy & Mark Adams-Westin with sister Mary Adams melting her harmonies into the mix. Four of the new tunes were penned by Amy. Welcome Home might just be sung around tables where families and loved ones gather together for a long time. Mark wrote six of the new tunes including what has all the trimmings of a new Christmas standard, Got A Candle In My Window.
The journey winds through the Tin Pan Alleyesque This Day to the country folk Lovin' And Dancin' Thru Time, stops for rockers Hippie At Heart and I Keep Knocking, rests with the intimate and soulful Beartown and You're Not Alone, and ends up with Amy, Mary, Mark and Tim gathered around one microphone for Johnny Mercer's great WWII hit Dream.
Dancing Through TIME was recorded with Steve Kuether at his Panther Creek Recording cabin studio in the hills near Yellville, Arkansas. Steve who also engineered and played keyboards our first CD sail away, brought Bassist Rich Brown & Drummer Ryan Hurn with him from The Showboat Branson Belle (Branson, MO). The wonderful fiddler & mandolinist Tim Crouch fortunately wasn't already busy that day at The Grand Ole Opry with the likes of Vince Gill or Dolly Parton.
Dancing Through Time was recorded to sound as if Amy & Mark, Mary, Steve, Ryan, Rich, and Tim are in the room. Great sound still matters at OKAY TODAY RECORDS. There are no tech tricks on Dancing Through Time, just great songs performed by top-notch artists, it's so old-hat it's fresh!
