Train 05:34


American singer-songwriter Lisa Mednick Powell returns to Aldora Britain Records with a brand new single, 'Train', featuring her good friend and underground Americana hero James McMurtry.

'Train' is a softly spoken country folk shuffler, punctuated perfectly by well-executed twang and a smooth and soulful vocal. It has a classic Americana feel from its opening notes, but also retains that contemporary and fresh feel. As is ever the case with Lisa's songwriting output, 'Train' is a story song. This is a track that will allow listeners the space to reminisce and also travel new roads through free-roaming landscapes. 'Holding Hands With Heaven' provides the perfect B-side, another fantastic composition from Lisa. Here, she delves into a deeply soulful and emotive sound, providing a glorious snapshot of another side of her artistic personality.

For fans of Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Gram Parsons, Lucinda Williams, and John Hiatt.
