"Rinde Eckert is a strong male vocalist, and the style and sentiment
of his songs are drawn from the inner strength of white steepled churches,
the heroism of social revolutionaries, and the chivalry of a knight.
"I Will Shelter You" is a powerhouse of a you-can-lean-on-me ballad.
"Lullaby" is a dynamic appeal to keep our sons from guns. Though much
of the music is rooted in solid choral structures, "Roll on Green River"
builds with rock 'n' roll chaos, where even still waters flood the homelands.
Eckert resists this onslaught with a forceful operatic baritone. On
the journey you'll also encounter two country-western waltzes, a rough
blues, and a romantic ballad with just a touch of tango. This album
is arresting and original.
