Tell Me Why I’ve Come Home by Callie Hines: EP Review
Do you love the soul of Americana music and the allure of folk tunes? Well, ladies and gents then you’re gonna love the cadence of Louisiana native Callie Hines and their charming EP “Tell Me Why I’ve Come Home.” It’s got every piece of heaven, with Hines’ angelic voice and instrumental bliss from trusty companions Zakk Garner, Joe Spivy, Rhees Williams, and Arron Shafer-Haiss guiding the way.
A calming tune forms in the opening number, “The Storm.” Which is a sensational folk track guaranteed to cozy you right up. Hines’s voice fits in perfectly alongside the beautiful fiddle arrangements by ACM Award nominee Joe Spivy, also, the song has some chill mandolin bits. Next up, is “Secrets to Hide,” an emotional pop-rock tune that’ll tug at your heartstrings. Its songwriting essence and Zakk’s epic guitar riffs keep us hooked. Cruising along the EP elated me with every new turn, this time around a clean flute segment greets me in “Tattoo Therapy.” It creates a lovely blend with Hines’s voice, especially when the piano arrives.
The title track has such a groove. Drummer Arron Shafer-Haiss truly nailed the tempo on this one. The song is a slow-paced hymn with elements of Americana gracing the sound. Joe’s gleeful fiddle and Rhees’ upright bass came along nicely in the melody of “Crazy Tonight”, and paved the way for the conclusion to arrive in “From The Start.” It’s a pleasant folk-rock tune that’ll mesmerize you with its narrative and bluesy rhythms.
