THE NEW PROHIBITION “HIGHER PLACE”;
If you were to visit Berlin, Germany, you would have no trouble
finding good acoustic music. From the old time Killbilly Boys to the
innovative New Prohibition band, your pallet will have a lot to
chose from. Originally based out of Olympia, WA, the trio moved to
Europe in hopes of reaching the growing number of acoustic fans
there. From the looks of it they are doing a mighty fine job of it.
The group has released their second album entitled “Higher Place“.
The haunting voice of Cera Impala drives the unique sound of this
invigorating group throughout the project as well as her saucy
songwriting. The group is rounded out well with Dirk Ronneburg
taking on the fiddle and Jovanka von Wilsdorf on contrabass. There
is also an electro-coustic instrumentalist in most tracks we imagine
is KILL BAMBI who is rocking this duet with Cera Impala. The project
is a clever blend of old time, jazz, and bluegrass with a healthy
amount of dynamic jamming. There is a surprising amount of energy in
their playing. They do a great job of drawing the listener in with
catchy melodies and keeping them interested with their good lyrics.
“Higher Place” is sure to satisfy your crave for “something
different” and enjoyable.
