A talented artist whose career spans twenty-seven years, Luanne Hunt has already had more highs and lows than most. After having her music featured on national television, including Doug and Stephan’s Good Day Morning Show, and gracing the stages of the Wheeler Opera House and Performing Arts Center, she’s become an undeniable fixture of the music scene, and now, with the release of her picturesque twenty-first studio album, Luanne is showing the best is still yet to come.
A three-time Grammy balloted indie-country star, Luanne is no stranger to the spotlight, and in ‘Portraits In Song’, she’s delivered an astounding and wonderfully expansive testament to her craft. Opening with the orchestral sounds of ‘It Was Always You’, Luanne’s new album is a powerful showcase of her baroque folk-rock vocals and timeless country sounds, offering textured, yet passionate sound that will have you hooked from start.
Elsewhere on the record, ‘Midnight Rain & Roses’ promotes a brilliant piano-led sound, delivering dreamy Fleetwood Mac vibes, while ‘Two Angels Fly’ and ‘The Butterfly Effect’ showcase the full weight and power of her vocals. It’s a wonderfully expressive, often emotional, mix of sounds, and Luanne has done a brilliant job balancing the music and her vocals so that each one perfectly complements the other.
Speaking of the new album, Luanne explained, “I consider ‘Portraits in Song’ to be my crowning achievement thus far. It reflects my love of folk-rock artists in the same vein as, America, Crosby, Stills and Nash and Van Morrison; I can’t get enough of the songs from the 60s and 70s era. They truly are the bar I always set for myself.”
A country-rock anthology that shines with flowing folk sounds, Luanne’s latest album is elegant, bewitching, and wonderfully engaging, creating a nostalgic journey that will appeal to everyone. Stream the new album above, and make sure you follow Luanne on her social media pages below for more.
