Leaving Paper City

by The Scarlet Tree

Available at most online retailers or here

“Leaving Paper City” by The Scarlet Tree is eclectic in feel, ranging from Americana, Country, Roots Rock to almost Latin.  Delivering an auspicious album, Christopher and Vanessa score a definite win.  Vanessa Constance Knox is a humble, polished performer who never lets her own ambition cloud her purpose -- performing brilliant, deceptively simple and beautiful music.  The caliber of each musician is phenomenal and Vanessa herself possesses a voice that is all at once smokey, rich, warm and intimate.  The Scarlet Tree not only has a great sound, they have great songs as well.  The material, unlike 'Making Spirits Bright' their Holiday album, is all original and the multi-talented group of players, Scott Dente, Ken Lewis, and Jerry McPherson surpass expectations delivering a timeless, rich record.   The album is a divine marriage of first-class music with marvelous lyrics.  It feels familiar and yet it’s fresh. We've only just begun to witness what The Scarlet Tree has to offer. This album is a gem.
