"Rising Tribe Review"

Some songs have a sense of timelessness, as if they always existed and were just waiting for the right person to pull them out of the air and put them to paper and music. This feeling is what a listener experiences when hearing Tiffany Gassett and Rising Tribe. This Massachusetts band's 2008 debut album, Back To The Water, is one of those infrequent examples where all the elements work together perfectly to create an inspiring whole. Each song is thoughtful, well crafted and arranged, and pleasingly delivered in a smooth, pure, straightforward way. The impressive musicianship is stirring and breathes life into every track.
Categorized as Folk rock, Country, Island Reggae, and Classic Rock, Rising Tribe demonstrates adeptness at each genre, catching all the nuances and bringing them to light. In addition, the song "In Pain" holds a Celtic reminder with its sweet, natural sound, and the title track, "Back To The Water" has a moving tribal feel. It's difficult to choose a favorite, as every selection has so much to offer. "Think" is philosophical and smart with a modern edge; "Montana" is country - simple and clean, with pitch-perfect harmony, and "No Hard Feelings" is sad and sweet. We loved the catchy "Six O'Clock," too. This music inhabits both the past and the here and now, simultaneously - a rare feat for a band that is a rare find.
***** Excellent!
