Jeremy Pinnell – Ties Of Blood And Affection

  • September 6, 2017

Cincinnati music veteran Jeremy Pinnell has been exploring traditional country and roots music for over a decade and has become known for his reflective and honest songwriting and soulful vocals. Pinnell follows-up his excellent 2015’s OH/KY album with his second album, Ties of Blood and Affection. Again, Pinnell presents listeners with another set of polished, honest and contemplative songs but this time the songs come from a less dark place, moving away from themes of pain and remorse and toward a sense of redemption and happiness. Here Pinnell is backed by a talented band that bring the spirit of vintage honky tonk and outlaw country sound. Standout tracks include: the opener “Ballad of 1892”; the honky tonk ballad “Different Kind of Love”; the contemplative “I’m Alright With This”; the upbeat ditty “Ain’t Nothing Wrong”; and the soulful “The Way We See Heaven.” If you haven’t heard of Jeremy Pinnell you likely will – he is another amazingly talented up-and-comer whose music easily fits alongside contemporaries like Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell and Chris Stapleton. Ties of Blood and Affection is an excellent album that’s been on heavy rotation on my turntable; go out and give it a listen. – Written by JFelton
