Kelly Willis’ and Bruce Robison’s individual artistic achievements already sum up to impressive totals, but when they unite as an ongoing musical act, the sum of the parts is a musical quantity is far greater than the whole. Willis has reigned as a critically acclaimed roots music singer and Robison has made his mark as both a writer of smash #1 hits like “Wrapped” (George Strait), “Angry All The Time” (Tim McGraw & Faith Hill) and “Travelin’ Soldier” (Dixie Chicks) and an artist in his own right. When playing together occasionally over the years turned into a real collaboration, this couple in life, love and parenthood now unite as a band all its own. It’s more about the promise and thrills of the new than their considerable solo legacies and the laurels they have already earned.
