Best Of ’11: The Civil Wars

The Civil Wars – Barton Hollow

It’s truly hard to believe that John Paul White and Joy Williams have only known each other for a few years. In 2008, they were brought together for a blind songwriting session and they clicked…to say the least! Their debut album, Barton Hollow is brilliant. The songs evoke a range of emotions with their breathtaking harmonies and delicate instrumentation. The chemistry between these two makes them one of my favorite live acts of the year as well…check out their live TV debut on Jay Leno:

The Civil Wars – “I Want You Back”

Well, I’m simply thrilled with my experience on the morning shift this week for many reasons. One of them stems from our Live, Acoustic and Cover tunes feature… where the morning jock seeks out alternate versions of songs and spins them at 8:20am on weekdays (a second set is featured at 5:20pm as well). In the 4 days I filled in, I found some real gems, including this hidden track from The Civil Wars… I’ve never heard “I Want You Back” done quite like this. They really give the words a sweet sweet sentiment.

The Civil Wars – “Barton Hollow”

So I first heard this duo sing a soft, delicate, and somber love song, and here they are countering that with a strong, powerhouse of a tune… I’m sold! Both songs are from their debut album, Barton Hollow, which comes out February 1st. It’s easy to hear why Joy Williams and John Paul White are getting so much buzz even before their debut album comes out…keep your eye (and ears) on The Civil Wars.

The Civil Wars – “Poison & Wine”

This duo has had a good year… getting over 90,000 downloads and 350,000 YouTube views before even releasing a full length album. The sound is soft but powerful; it’s subtle, but it grabs you. Their debut, Barton Hollow, comes out in February. Here’s the track, “Poison & Wine”:
