"Review from the UK"

When a deep passion for authentic roots music and a true sense of the ancient traditions of story telling and poetry are combined with a wistful disregard for breaking the musical laws, something fantastical breathes new life into tired traditions.
Lance Weaver's agressive banjo flailing is as entrancing as his deft touch on mandolin or guitar whilst Tamlyn's voice has the ability to soothe like a lullaby or chill like a banshee.
Like the surroundings of their home in Utah, their music offers beauty and wildness in equal measure.
Weaver by name and musical nature, the familiar sounds of Hillbilly, Country and Americana are woven with ease into less familiar territory. Splashes of Celtic airs, Country licks and classic story telling are all stirred in the mix.
Exciting, heartwarming, compelling, creative, intelligent and stirring; Lance and Tamlyn Weaver are the best kept secret in The South West...no coincidence they come from Butch Cassidy country..great story...definitely outlaws but in the end, brilliantly executed!

"Hillbilly VooDoo"


Hillbilly Voodoo
A Farmers Prayer
Stonehouse Records

A few years ago, a movie called O’ Brother Where Art Thou made us
aware of the simple power and poetry of roots music. Some people may
not remember the film, but the music left its mark on many. Roots music
is truly an American treasure. It demonstrates the simple power and
beauty of America’s folk music. Hillbilly Voodoo captures that power and
its essence perfectly in A Farmers Prayer. Their songs are soulful and
rich, sung beautifully with emotions that convey hard times and coping
with life’s heartbreaks. The music, rich in Anglo-Americana roots (guitar,
banjo stand up bass) weaves a dominant country melody around the
lyrics, but it’s the lovely vocals that breathes life into the words. You
can conjure up a Tom Joad - Grapes of Wrath vision of America while
listening to A Farmers Prayer. If you like down home country / folk
music, Hillbilly Voodoo is for you. Favorite songs: Flowers, Your Smile,
Can’t Believe – just to name a few. - indietude.com

Bio

When people ask us to describe our sound, We tell them “ Well, there’s a real hillbilly influence but as songwriter’s we play a variety of sounds and instruments.” Thus the VooDoo part of our name. Lance and I met in 1993 and have played together ever since. At first we just focused on accompanying each others songs, as time went on and new instruments were introduced to the act, we embarked on an exciting journey of co-writing songs. The songs we write together are strongly influenced by old-time music and the great songwriters of our time, Lucinda Williams, Towns Vandszant, Greg Brown, Welch & Rawlings and Steve earl to name a few. Our lyrics seek to reflect the trials and struggles of our lives and the broader influence of the world we live in. Our sound is not so much a specific genre or niche but a vibe and a groove. As individual songwriters, we both delve into the emotional and the stories we feel need telling.
Some of our past triumphs have been:
The Moab folk festival
IAMA concert series
Pickamania
Opening for "Open Road"
Opening for Molly O'brian
and many more....
