Country favourites, Autumn Hill, released their second album ‘Anchor’ today. The duo of Tareya Green and Mike Robbins came together in 2012. Since then, they have taken the country by storm, playing many festivals and club shows. They are also the first Canadian country act to hit the pop radio charts since Shania Twain.
If you’re looking for your feel good country album this summer, look no further. Autumn Hill brings the southern sound north with ‘Anchor’. If anything, this album reminds me of the country music I grew up with.
Three of my favourite songs are “Return Policy”, “Blame” and “Memphis”. Each of them brings a different sound to the table, showing their diverse talent within the genre. All three songs also have a perfect blend of the two vocals. I love how their voices complement each other and work with the songs.
The album finishes off with Robbins and Green doing a song solo. Both songs are slower. In my opinion this is a great way to showcase their abilities as singers and is a great closure for the album.
