Contemporary bluegrass quartet True North soar on “Elsebound”

True North (self-released)

Oregon-based bluegrass quartet True North have the type of chemistry you’d expect from a band made up of two sets of married couples in Kristen Grainger & Dan Wetzel and Dale Adkins & Suzanne Pearce Adkins. True North take full advantage of that chemistry on terrific new full-length “Elsebound,” a 13-track collection of twangy gems.

Working the guy-girl vocal dynamic to perfection, True North soar highest on keepers “Hard Place,” “Be Here Now,” “Twist in the Wind,” “The Poet & The Carpenter,” “Shiny Black Shoes,” “BFD” and “Come See What I Got for You.” This is contemporary bluegrass at its very finest.
