Dark And Weary World


SAJB began in the Fall of 2000 when singer/guitarist James Hyland pulled together a few pickers for a one-off gig at Austin's Broken Spoke. Since finalizing their current lineup in late 2004, the band has recorded this, their second album. Reflecting on an enthralling year, Hyland said, "This is the best ensemble we've had, and we just want to run with this as long as we can." Hyland fronts SAJB with his smoothly twanged tenor, and is joined by Will Dupuy (bass), Willie Pipkin (lead guitar), Dennis Ludiker (mandolin, fiddle) and Brian Beken (fiddle) in a style that is described by Tony Peyeser in the Santa Monica Mirror as "old-timey roots but deliver the musical goods in a contemporary, loosey-goosey style." Dark And Weary World epitomizes the maturity that SAJB has gained on the road. Each track, each song, each voice and solo and note is imbued with a committed passion that courses through the entire album. The ballads are bent on breaking our hearts, the instrumentals crackle with spitfire solos, and their newgrass numbers are stacked with vibrant, vigorous lines.
