Product Description

Shawn Mullins’ vibrant album Honeydew is teeming with humanity--hobos, railroad workers, traveling salesmen, homeless troubadours, fearful old people, youngsters yearning to escape from a dead-end existence, and several generations of family members, living and dead. There’s a ton of heartache in this record, and a ton of hope as well, as Mullins explores the dark corners of contemporary existence while also delving back into the past, capturing vivid pictures of his native Atlanta and the surrounding South in a voice of plainspoken eloquence and uncommon genuineness. This richly interwoven, character-driven work is at once the most panoramic album of Mullins’ distinguished career and the most intensely personal.

Produced by the artist, the recording took place at Creekside Station, the rural Georgia studio of Gerry Hansen, Mullins’ longtime drummer, who engineered and mixed the record. Other regulars include bassist Patrick Blanchard, multi-instrumentalist Clay Cook, B3/Wurlitzer specialist Marty Kearns and mandolin player Kip Conner. Mullins managed to snag guitarist Peter Stroud (Sheryl Crow) during a break in his touring schedule. Also making appearances are Atlanta blues and soul legend Francine Reed (Lyle Lovett) on "Homeless Joe" and "All In My Head", and Australian alt-country artist Kasey Chambers on "Cabbagetown".

Good album. If you liked Soul's core and want more - this fits the bill. Definitely better than the album Shawn did as part of the Thorns (shawn, matthew sweet, +1)

Why ony 4 stars ? well to be honest I'm torn between 4 and 5 stars. I've rounded down to 4 stars on the grounds that there's a recession on, and you might be short of cash ...

It doesnt have quite the range of Soul's Core or Eggshells or the best of Shawn's earlier work (as summarised neatly on The First Ten Years or in the individual CDs). So if you've got two or three of these you might find this is good-but-familiar.

recommend seeing him live too !

Bowled over by this. Only had Souls Core previously and that was fantastic. If anything, Honeydew is even better. I don't write reviews, but the quality of this music has made me do it! I simply do not understand why Shawn is not better known.

I first heard Shawn Mullins on the radio and it was a track from Soul's Core. I couldn't get over how I was able to visualise the music in my head as he was singing the lyrics. He quite literally paints pictures with words and this album is no different to Soul's Core in that respect. I just wish he would get his act together and tour the UK, I reckon I would be first in line to buy a ticket. Keep it up Mr Mullins, you're doing your country's music tradition a power of good.
