Drayton Farley from the album Twenty on High
Drayton Farley from the album Twenty on High available on Hargrove Records/Thirty Tigers (by Bryant Liggett)
The latest from Drayton Farley is picturesque, personal and personable. Twenty on High is Farley laying it all out, dropping a heavy narrative via songs that are both stories and lessons; loaded with vivid detail. Those emotions are explored right from the get-go. “Stop the Clock” is Drayton Farley looking back fondly on his past and the ‘house that we called home, it was a single-wide, it was a cornerstone’. “Stop the Clock” is Farley singing about the locomotive that is time, expressing a wish turn back the days, hours, minutes…. even if it’s for only a second.
There’s a gritty wall of electric guitar in “Norfolk Blues” where Drayton Farley is reminding you about the bleakness of a dead-end job, and he drops a bouncy two-stepper in “Devils in NOLA” that has swinging fiddle, but this is a record that’s all about the ballad. Slide guitar and organ accentuate the sadness of “Wasted Youth,” “Something Wrong (Inside My Head)” is a cut that questions why you can be down when there’s sometimes good all around you, and “Alabama Moon” is a road song that delivers big ache and big sadness.
Look no further for sadness in the song, as Drayon Farley’s has done it all for you! Twenty on High is gentle, subtle, and hushed, a laid-back effort exploring a gamut of emotions. (by Bryant Liggett)
