Sierra Ferrell's "Trail of Flowers" A Wonderful Mix of New and Old Sounds

Sierra Ferrell, the singer songwriter from West Virginia who has been blessing listeners with her work for years now, and has once again proven why she's one of the best doing it right now.

Ferrell's newest album, "Trail of Flowers," paints a picture of a singer chasing stardom while struggling with the sacrifices that need to be made along the way. The second track, "Dollar Bill Bar," which was released as a single along with "Fox Hunt," features a more classic country sound that at various moments throughout, sounds like something that could've been written by Shania Twain, John Anderson, The Beatles, and Sting. It's a beautiful song that then gets turned on its head by the next single, Fox Hunt.

However, it's in tracks like "Wish You Well" where Ferrell's songwriting prowess truly shines. With poetic lyricism and soul-stirring melodies, she explores the transformative power of forgiveness—a theme woven intricately throughout the album.

Playful tales like "Rosemary" add layers of whimsy and intrigue, inviting listeners to lose themselves in the enchanting landscapes Ferrell paints with her music.

While Ferrell's studio recordings capture only a fraction of the magic she exudes onstage, "Trail of Flowers" serves as a captivating companion for those seeking refuge from the chaos of everyday life. Though nothing can quite replicate the experience of witnessing Ferrell's live performances, this album offers a glimpse into the surreal world she effortlessly conjures.

Sierra Ferrell's "Trail of Flowers" is more than just music—it's a portal to enchantment, a respite from reality, and a testament to the creativity of one of music's biggest talents.
