The Hannafords new CD release - A Good Paddock.
And what a good selection of work this is too.
Craig & Auriol Hannaford have proved that perseverance is one of the keys to making your music standout.
On this, their third release, I found an “organic” sense about “A Good Paddock”. I enjoyed listening to the use of guitar, banjo, violin and mandolin etc which gave it a true acoustic feel. In doing so, it complimented very well the types of stories being told in the songs.
Auriol, as the main singer, has a real sense of honesty in her voice. Having listened to previous work I believe her strengths lie in this style of music where she comes across vocally comfortable.
The title track – A Good Paddock, A Better Way, Have a Go and Cliff the Cabbie are my favs with good storytelling lyrics getting you in.
This duo work hard to get their message across and deserve credit as Indie artists. They are embracing all avenues available to them to get people listening to their story and it’s a good story to tell.
