Lucy Kaplansky & Richard ShindellIf you know their solo work, you’re already hooked on the idea of Lucy Kaplansky & Richard Shindell as a duo. Under the name The Pinehill Project, they’ve just recorded an album of duets, Tomorrow You’re Going, that features some of their favorite songs by other artists, from Gillian Welch to Greg Brown, Van Morrison to Nick Lowe. They even cover “Sweetest Thing” by U2. Nashville Music News calls the album “evocative, sometimes rollicking, and deeply moving,” and goes on to say that “Lucy and Richard’s stunning harmonies powerfully evoke this sense of loss, while at the same time calling us all home to the broad cultural field where Americana, folk, country, pop, and roots music meet. Rarely have two singers sounded so perfectly suited to each other and to the repertoire. They bring a new, deeply personal musical sensibility to this treasure trove of songs.”
 
Lucy Kaplansky has a voice you won’t forget. Clear, pure, and full of tender feeling, it cuts through the noise of the world and pierces you in the heart. She’s “a truly gifted performer,” according to The New Yorker, “with a bag of enchanting songs,” and her most recent solo album, Reunion, is “her best yet,” says AcousticMusic.com, which praises “the emotionally unflinching stories, the complete honesty of her lyrics and vocals, and then there's the voice—the one that singers want backing them in harmony, and the one fans want to hear front and center.”
 
Richard Shindell is a powerful singer, masterful guitarist, and pungent songwriter who tells compelling stories that range from the tartly comic to the profoundly spiritual. His voice carries his own particular strain of emotion, almost bitter, almost exhausted, but unable to stop the hope from rising up. “Lord, deliver me to the next Best Western,” he sings. The Wall Street Journal calls him “a master of subtle narrative.” Entertainment Weekly praises his “disturbing, beautifully drawn portraits of frantic losers.” He “is a master builder of songs,” says the Boston Globe, with an “uncanny sense of the theater of a song, building his ballads sparely and subtly, set to sweeping graceful melodies.”
