Hezekiah Goode

Two Billion Acres of Salt
Self-released

It's evident from "A Fence of Colorado Stone," the opening track on Two Billion Acres of Salt, that vocalist Hezekiah Goode has a strong affinity for old-time folk and country — and pedal-steel player Glenn Taylor, banjoist Keith Reed and fiddle player Greg Buergler help him drive this point home. Elsewhere on the disc, Goode, who also plays guitar, delves into foot-tapping bluegrass on "Get That Fiddle Fired Up" and Bascom Lunsford's "Good Old Mountain Dew" and Western swing on Jimmy Rodgers's "Nobody Knows but Me," then slows it down on the heartfelt "Ballad of Enos McCracken." There's a particular clarity and warmth to Goode's vocal delivery throughout, which works exceptionally well with whatever approach he takes, especially on the slow country waltz "I Need You to Walk Away."
