East Nash Grass (from the album Last Chance to Win available on Mountain Fever Records) (by Danny McCloskey)
A flurry of strings wafts in like a fresh breeze when East Nash Grass begin the song cycle on the title track of their recent release, Last Chance to Win. The vocals tell the story, however, in East Nash Grass, strings are the kings. Dubbed a ‘band of ringers’ by Jerry Douglas due to the credentials of the players, each member found playing in touring bands as well as needed studio backing for the recordings of other musicians. East Nash Grass, James Kee (guitar), Cory Walker (banjo), Harry Clark (mandolin), Gaven Largent (dobro), Maddie Denton (fiddle), and Jeff Picker (bass), are smooth operators as they navigate Last Chance to Win. They seamlessly trade vocals and leads, the melodies alive with the A-list playing of the band themselves.
From the homebase in Madison, Tennessee, East Nash Grass are an audio freight train, barreling through the songs like the locomotive is a runaway engine heading down a hill in “Railroad and Gamblin’” and “Jenna McGaugh” while a smooth, slightly rushed, groove percolates underneath “I Almost Told Her” and “Love Slippin’ Away”. Last Chance to Win climbs on a rattling rhythm for “Papa’s on the Housetop”, sending out a love letter to “Scarlet Iris” and setting the emotional GPS for a lot of curves in “East Due West Blues”. East Nash Grass are a footstompers fantasy vacation. Quieting the strums for “Magic City Grey”, Last Chance to Win hurries to catch up to the fasttrack toetaps in “How Could I Love Her So Much” as East Nash Grass offer strength in the story of “When You Come Home” as the music supports the promise with sturdy got-your-back rhythms.
