If alt country needs a queen, we nominate Heidi Howe to the throne. Be Good is Heidi’s first new album of original material in a number of years — a melodious, twangy, sonically beautiful album with songs rich in Americana spirit, optimism, and plenty more feel good vibes that will surely put anyone in a better mood.
“Kind Of Crazy,” the standout opening track describes Howe’s affection with the one she finds the perfect kind of crazy for her; it’s pure traditional country with her nasal twang vocals, reminiscent of Stevie Nicks. She pays homage to her heroes on the tracks “The Ramones & George Jones,” “Ryan Adams Can” (yes, these are actual song titles) and “Stand” where she hopes her relationship can become a great love story as much as June and Johnny Cash’s marriage was.
With songs that will resonate with listeners from Nashville to Red Hook, Brooklyn Heidi Howe has delivered an album with massive appeal, and poetic country-esque lyrics that people everywhere will relate to and enjoy.
