See what eveyone’s saying about Carolina Road’s new CD!

Prescription Bluegrass CD Reviews:

Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Roadm

Media
“This is a wonderfully tasty romp that takes you back to when the music mattered and it had to be good music first before the machine could turn it into product. Hot stuff.” Midwest Records Reviews

“The reason for LJ’s success, though, is not difficult to discern: this band is unbelievably tight when they rev up, which is often, and back door breezy in balladry. Jordan’s known for her maverick hard-driving mandolin style, and Ben Greene’s a damn good banjo player, non-stop picking. Josh Goforth plies a fiddle in the fashion of a David Laflamme or a Richard Greene after a few dozen Starbucks Specials, Tommy Long tackling the lead vocals along with Lorraine and setting his guitar down in the rhythm section, John Bradley’s bass accompanying.”
Mark Tucker – FAME

“Good album by a band that specializes in a hard-driving traditional sound.” Keith Lawrence – Bluegrass Notes

“Fixtures on the modern bluegrass scene, Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road area back with a twang.” Jeffrey Sisk – McKeesport Daily News

“The sound of Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road makes me feel like I am sitting on a porch swing, just relaxing and enjoying life.”

Family Friendly Gaming

Radio
“I hope that all is well! We’re playing the new single and have it in our mix. Lorraine and the boys will be appearing at Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion Festival on September 20, 2013.” Larry Gorley, WOPI

“LOVE THE SINGLE & can’t wait for the CD!!!!”
Buddy Michaels, WBAG/WKRX/WLHC

“Thanks Matt I am playing it.” Pete Hart, WOUB

“I love this group and they have been on my playlist since 2008. The guitar player (Josh Goforth) has been a studio guest. Gave a fabulous set! Have been playing the new single and look forward to complete CD.” Bob Mitchell, WKWC-FM, WFPK-FM, and Radio Bluegrass International

“Enjoying AND airing the single Matt. Looking forward to the full project. Thanks for checking in.” Sherry Boyd, WBRF

“We always love anything that Lorraine does, love the single and looking forward to the full CD. Thanks so much, we need more of her sound these days. Thank her for us.” Bill Hensley & Miss. Vickie, WNKU-FM

McKeesport Daily News
‘Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road’
Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road (Pinecastle)
★★★½

Fixtures on the modern bluegrass scene, Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road are back with a twang-tastic self-titled release. Mixing some well-chosen covers with a handful of originals, Jordan & Carolina Road shine on most of the album’s 12 tracks. “Living With the Shades Pulled Down” is the best song here, though they also hit the right notes on “Livin’ Like I’m Dying,” “Song of the French Broad,” “I Heard You Call His Name Last Night,” “Suitcase of Your Heart” and a spirited rendition of the traditional instrumental “Liza Jane.” Enjoy, y’all.
