Hearing Crickets
Armadillo Productions

Tillis’s album, Hearing Crickets, features an array of guitar-driven tunes (and the occasional mandolin-driven ones). The Tillis men (David on guitar, Sean on bass, and Michael on Drums) adeptly weave their way through blues, fusion, rock, bluegrass, gospel and even a rather “mitable” version of Santana’s inimitable Soul Sacrifice.

Though the CD sleeve looks nice and polished, producing lyric sheets and acknowledgement info, etc., it doesn’t seem to mention the relationship among band members, but methinks they’re brothers. Me also thinks they’re from Florida. Whatever the case, this album is an engaging one for those who like fine guitar work, accomplished musicianship and a variety of styles. And though the songs carry a broad range, the common thread lies in the voice of Americana.

Favorite Track: Track 5, “Nicely Nasty”
