If Becky Buller could be described in one word perhaps 'quintessential' is it. Buller's latest project exudes everything Bluegrass music fans have come to know and love about this award-winning artist. The only difference in "Distance and Time" and Buller's previous projects is that it continues to build on her sheer talent and musicianship that speaks to a very successful career as a multi-IBMA award winner.
The project kicks off with "Don't Look Back" which showcases Buller's stellar vocals to the backdrop of the incredible talented musicians found in her band. The song is a reminder to listeners not to look back because the way forward is the only way and could be an anthem to speaks to current times. As listeners are taught a lesson in looking back, they are then urged to take "The Ride" and get moving along to see what else this stellar project holds.
Buller teams up with award-winning vocalists and musicians on "Distance and Time" that gives listeners an added bonus if you will. Ronnie Bowman lends his vocals on a duet with Buller entitled, "You Come Around". Buller teams up with Gospel greats, The Fairfield Four, again on this project for another inspirational number, "Tell the Truth (Shame the Devil)". Just when listeners think they have reached the peak, Buller comes out of the gate with another inspirational number, "Salt and Light", sung with award-winning, Southern Gospel and IBMA artists, The Issacs. And that's not all, Buller enlists multi-award IBMA award winner, Jerry Douglas' talent for the Joni Mitchell tune, "Woodstock". The project wraps with the catchy, "More Heart, Less Attack" which is a reminder to us all of what the human condition should be.
Once again, Becky Buller has outdone herself on "Distance and Time" proving why she has achieved so much success throughout her stellar career. Listeners come away with a message of grace and hope that only distance and time can provide.
