Album Review: Dailey & Vincent – Singing From The Heart
This gospel release has been in the works for some time. Before Jamie and Darrin were Dailey and Vincent, sensational bluegrass duo, they joined forces to benefit Tennessee Bible College. The result is Singing From the Heart. While gospel albums are nothing new in bluegrass music, this one’s a little different: it’s all a cappella quartet singing.
Joined by a roster of guest stars that includes Molly Skaggs (the daughter of Ricky Skaggs and Sharon White) and Doyle Lawson, Dailey and Vincent deliver a dozen instantly recognizable gospel songs ranging from “Amazing Grace” to “The Old Rugged Cross.” While the source material isn’t exactly new, these folks make it interesting. At first it’s a little jarring to not hear expertly played bluegrass instruments in the background. But that feeling quickly vanishes, as the pair—and their stellar guests—can easily captivate a listener with just their voices singing in perfect harmony. The highlight of the album is “Don’t You Wanna Go to Heaven,” a staple of Dailey and Vincent’s live performances. Insanely catchy and extremely well sung, it’ll stick in just about anyone’s head, religious or not.
Though they haven’t been a duo for very long, Dailey and Vincent have set a high standard with the quality of their albums. Singing From the Heart definitely lives up to it.
