Laurie Lewis as Writer
ljselden | Virginia, USA | 01/21/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In addition to being a great vocalist, instrumentalist (fiddle), and producer, Laurie Lewis is a songwriter of the highest caliber. "Earth and Sky" is a mere sampling of what this amazingly gifted woman can do. She is just as good on-stage as she is in the studio. I highly recommend this CD to ANYone who loves great lyrics and music. It rates at least a 6 on a scale of 1 to 5 (5 being the best)."
Draws from Laurie's three "Flying Fish" albums

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Vocalist, instrumentalist, and bandleader Laurie Lewis displays her many musical talents and abilities with the release of Earth & Sky: Songs Of Laurie Lewis. This outstanding CD collection draws from Laurie's three "Flying Fish" albums, as well as four previously unreleased tracks. Very strongly recommended listening for fans of bluegrass, folk, and homegrown country music, Earth & Sky includes Girlfriend, Guard Your Heart (2:41); Green Fields (4:48); Don't Get Too Close (3:34); Love Chooses You (4:31); Texas Bluebonnets (4:10); Fine Line (4:48); Old Friend (3:56); The Maple's Lament (4:51); The Bear Song (3:50); The Light (3:55); The Point of No Return (3:55); Restless Rambling Heart (3:37); I'd Be Lost Without You (4:53); The Hills of My Home (2:38); Haven of Mercy (5:05); and Magical Light (3:55)."
Singer, songwriter, fiddler extraordinaire!

"Other Laurie Lewis albums allow you to enjoy her remarkable affinity for Bill Monroe and other bluegrass classics. On this album, her own songs are showcased, and it is an incredible collection. There is some awesomely serious songwriting talent on display here -- every song is full of heart, intelligence, informed by eyes that seem to see a lot more of both human nature and the natural world than most others manage to notice. Lewis's albums are always notable for their excellent song selection, and this album helps us understand why: what she herself writes is unfailingly beautiful, intelligent, and musically top-notch.And it would be remiss of me not to comment on her incredible vocals. She effectively uses her voice as a complex, rich instrument, and it sounds better and better with every release. Her mastery and control of her voice just seem to be on an ever-upward curve. At some points in her songs, I listen to what her voice does just within the space of a single word, and I'm amazed.Whether it's Lewis's vibrant fiddling matched to the great story of "The Bear Song," the plaintive "Love Chooses You" (with incredible resonator guitar backup by Jerry Douglas) or the norteno/swing-inflected "Texas Bluebonnets," this is a collection you shouldn't miss. It will be one of your favorites right out of the box, then will grow on you even more with every hearing."
