The Civil Wars Barton Hollow on LP + CD

2011's acclaimed Barton Hollow is the gold certified debut full-length from The Civil Wars, a duo comprised of California-to-Nashville transplant Joy Williams and her Alabaman partner, John Paul White. The bare-bones arrangements that fans hear on the road are fleshed out with just the barest of acoustic accoutrements herein and each song is an intimate conversation that is as gorgeous as it is haunting. 

Not only does Barton Hollow combine blues, folk, Americana, country and classic singer/songwriter material, the Charlie Peacock produced release boasts brilliantly universal narratives that are both elliptical and emotional. It all culminates in the critically acclaimed breakout single "Poison & Wine" and the band was awarded handsomely at the 2012 Grammy's for 'Best Country Duo/Group Performance' and 'Best Folk Album.'

"I do naturally bend pop," says Williams, who adds that she "grew up on Billie Holliday and The Beach Boys." White, meanwhile, was raised on Kristofferson, Cash, and Townes Van Zandt by his retro-country-favoring dad. "Somehow we're pulling from each other what we crave and what our strengths are," he says.

"Its sound is reminiscent of the Grammy-winning work of Alison Krauss and Robert Plant, but with a looser, more unpredictable energy." - Los Angeles Times

"Agile melodies and shimmering harmony vocals, utterly mesmerizing and with more than a hint of the English folk-ballad tradition and the sophistication of Leonard Cohen." - The Washington Post

"The Civil Wars are a bonafide phenomenon." - KCRW
