Jett’s Creek saw the release yesterday of their second CD, Guilty. The Cincinnati, OH band was formed by siblings Adam McIntosh and Angie Young, along with their dad, Jon McIntosh.
This project has been a long time in coming. A single was released on Prime Cuts in May of 2009, but tough economic times delayed the album’s completion until recently.
Angie shared a few thoughts about Guilty, and the new single which is available to radio through AirPlay Direct.
“The new single is Gunpowder and Lead, written by Miranda Lambert and Heather Little. It’s actually one of only 3 previously released songs on Guilty. We chose to release it because it’s a killer song, and we love doing it on stage. It’s just one of those songs that you feed off the crowd when you perform it and everybody has a great time.
People kept asking for it at the record table when we would come off stage so the decision to include it on “Guilty” was easily made. I was not expecting to release it as the single but after DJ feedback; we decided to go for it. Hopefully everyone else agrees.
Guilty also features new material written by Jerry Salley a terrific song called Baby You Ain’t Baby Anymore. Jerry was so gracious when I contacted him looking for a really quick tempo song and sent this one to me. We were actually at the studio when I got the email with the demo attached. It came to my phone so we learned andarranged the song right in the control room by putting my phone on speaker! You gotta love technology!
Other writers featured are Mark ‘Brink’ Brinkman and Mike Evans. Adam has written a great gospel track titled He Loves Me which I think is great as well.”
Special guests on Guilty include Evan McGregor, Rob Baker and Garrett Bryant. Knee Deep In Bluegrass host Cindy Baucom tells us a bit about the group…
“I have enjoyed getting to know the members of Ohio-based Bluegrass band, JETT’S CREEK. It didn’t take long to learn how passionate they are about their music. The core of the band, Adam McIntosh, his sister, Angie Young and their father, Jon McIntosh, have performed together for many years. This project represents just how far they have come musically. They are a tight band instrumentally and deliver the vocals with a smoothness I find extremely refreshing,”
Here’s a listen to that single from last year, Please, written and sung by Angie Young.
