‘A Long Time Coming: Larry & Teresa’s Debut’
“Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams is one of the best albums of 2015 not only because of Campbell and Williams’ vision but also because of their deep love for each other, their passion for making good music together, building songs layer by layer vocally, lyrically, and instrumentally, their commitment to purity in musical self-expression, and their energetic and deeply felt desire for delivering this good music straight from their hearts to ours.”
“I felt like we really said what we were trying to say [with this album],” Campbell says. “In its artistic essence, this is who we are: playing this great music with great people and with the person I want to be with.”
“More than any other quality, Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams carries a purity of expression difficult to find on many other albums released in any year. Whether he’s playing guitar, fiddle, mandolin, or steel guitar, Campbell never wastes a note. Williams’ vocal phrasing is impeccable. Like any great soul singer – Maxine Brown, say – she controls her breathing, wielding the power of her vocals to deliver just the right emotional touch to a lyric.”
