CLOSE TO HOME Val Mindel & Emily Miller 2013
This record is a collection of 12 songs ranging from traditional to early country to newly composed, all chosen for their power and harmony-singing possibilities. Val and Emily are joined by Emily's husband, Jesse Milnes, who sings third harmony parts and plays his unique style of fingerpicking guitar. Other guests include Ryan Hommel on electric guitar, Bruce Jones on dobro and Joseph "Joebass" DeJarnette on upright bass. The album was recorded by Joebass at his studio in Floyd, Virginia, and produced by Jesse Milnes.
