‘Filled with hushed conversations between lovers, the kind of sparse arrangements that beg to be played in dim lighting. It’s an impressive debut’ Interview Magazine

Fresh out of Nashville,The Civil Wars are a raw and unique talent who’s heartbreakingly sparse and beautiful melodies sit perfectly with their two agonisingly restrained individual voices. With ... Read more in Amazon's The Civil Wars Store

A trip to Memphis Tennessee a few years back continues to pay dividends and can I thank a number of American friends for this recommendation. The Civil Wars are a duo consisting of John Paul White, hailing from Florence, Alabama and Joy Williams, originally from Santa Cruz, CA, but now residing in East Nashville. They have already altruistically shared a free concert album "Live at Eddie's attic" which remains available on their My space site for those of you seeking fine new music and now we have this wonderful debut album "Barton Hollow" to delight our aural senses. The word which best epitomises this record is "passionate". Check out the performance of the swampy folk title track they unveiled on the Jay Leno show and try not to be smitten by its drive and force. There certainly is a kind of "mixed doubles" Avett Brothers quality to their music but equally the duo evoke the fine pedigree of a Welch and Rawlings with their great singing voices and haunting melodies.

At the heart of "Barton Hollow" is the songwriting and none is finer that the brilliant alt country ballad "Poison and Wine" possibly the finest song I have heard this year and one you should send out a search party to locate. It builds slowly and deliberately and the vocals of White in particular resonate with emotion, building to a lovely climax. Opener "20 years" harks bark to that great forgotten American duo the Swell Season and is a heartbreaking country lament destined to take Nashville by storm. It is song that Emmylou Harris should record immediately. "The girl with the red balloon" has a ancient quality about it which the Fleet Foxes tapped into on their eponymous debut, while the haunting instrumental "Violet Hour" repays repeated plays.

4.0 out of 5 stars Higly recommended 15 May 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is a very good 12-song album that encompasses pop, folk, Americana, classical music and blues. The songs have tunes and interesting lyrics. They are expertly performed and deliciously sung. If you liked Jenny & Johnny's I'm Having Fun Now, you will absolutely love this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars If only all civil wars were inspired like this 13 April 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is simply the best new country set i've heard in a long ,long time. The vocal harmonies are haunting and accompanied by sparce yet fluid arrangements that hypnotise and draw you in. As a debut album they may have just given themselves a massive task to better it with a follow up album, that said I hope they are prolific composers and that a second album won't be long. I for one will buy it. Anyone who has Duhks, Nickel Creek or Crooked Still albums must add this to their collections.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just get a copy! 14 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
It's not only the way they harmonise. It's the way Joy Williams' voice weaves around JP's lines. They both go their way but stay together. It's the quirky and often mystifying lyrics. It's the underlying humour. It's the total charisma. Oh yes, she's beautiful too but, hey, I can handle being in love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Birds of a Feather 15 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Really enjoyed this album despite all the massive and overblown hype.The songs and the inter-changing of the singing parts works extremely well.Some of the songs drag slightly but that is not anyway being critical of the expertise shown in their song writing.There is no doubt that their singing styles come together well and its probably safe to say that it won't be until their next album that The Civil Wars true staying power can be assessed but Barton Hollow is by all accounts a great start.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Civil War Just Heavenly Music 24 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Since buying this album it's been on constant replay. Two voices that blend and bring songs to life in a way rarely heard these days. Simple vocals which touch the heart. Magic. More please!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album of 2012 22 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having heard a few tracks by this duo on YouTube, I decided to buy the album. The blend of their two voices is so good that you would think that it's the same person. All of their songs are on the dark side, hence their name The Civil Wars. I would recommend this album.

I love this couple's voices. The lyrics are very poignant. Some are uplifting but the majority are contemplative, so perhaps not a CD to put on if you're feeling down! Read more
