Bonnie Bishop is the secret weapon. It’s her voice that periodically harmonizes with Jacob Furr’s during “Sierra Madre,” the title track of an album released almost two years ago.
Quoting content from the release of the album:
“"The 10 new tracks from Jacob Furr’s album find the Texas troubadour continuing down his path as a calculated, well rehearsed storyteller. For years, he was meandering through rolling hills and isolated pathways. On ‘Sierra Madre,’ it’s as though Furr has returned from jagged cliffs and sharp mountains. His storytelling is as surefire as ever, but there’s a confidence in Furr’s vocals unlike we’ve seen. There’s a presence throughout. It’s dark—and at times, feels as though it’s on the edge of engulfing Furr and company whole—but Furr continuously ropes it in. There’s an edge to it on tracks like 'Sierra Madre' and 'Estacado' that boom and echo. His shadow looms. The heavy grit mixes with the thick guitar licks that roar right alongside Furr. It’s a second storyteller in Furr’s album of tale, lore, and prophecy."
The contributors to the album include Jacob Furr (vocals, guitar), Ryan Tharp (vocals, guitar), Aaron Stanfield (drums, keys), Austin Lee Kroll (bass), Bonnie Bishop (vocals).
