I Hear The Wind In The Wires (2012)
There’s nothing more powerful than a good song and nobody knows that better than Jim Byrnes does. So, his decision to record an album of songs from the golden age of country music shouldn’t be all that surprising.
This time around, Byrnes turns back the hands of time to take his listeners into the world of country music, but it’s not the kind of country we’ve heard on the radio any time this century. With Jim’s compatriot, Steve Dawson back in the saddle again as producer and multi-instrumentalist (electric and acoustic guitars, slide guitar, pedal steel, baritone guitar, banjo, ukulele), ”I Hear The Wind In The Wires” is surely the most natural, satisfying and downright joyous album of Byrnes’ lengthy career.
To hear these two men celebrate the music of Buck Owens, Ray Price, Hank Williams, Marty Robbins and other fathers of country music is a rare and exhilarating experience.
With musicians like Geoff Hicks, Chris Gestrin, Mike Sanyshyn, John Resichman, and Rob Becker on board, there’s not a single note wasted.
Let the songs on “I Hear The Wind In The Wires” knock the frown off your face, pick you up and dust you off before sending you out - six guns smoking – to go looking for love in all the wrong places.
