Album Notes
In this, Kathy Boyd & Phoenix Rising's third album and first all-gospel recording, you have the opportunity to enjoy twelve original tunes by this energetic band.

The band has jelled into a great groove during their five years together. FAITH, HOPE, BLUEGRASS MUSIC is the tune that really hones in on what the band is all about. With its up-tempo bluegrass flavor and Tom Tower's lead vocals, it is probably my favorite track, although it is a tough choice between that and Kathy's THANKSGIVING. This is the song that epitomizes Kathy's attittude about life; be happy, be appreciative and enjoy every day. The title track on this CD - WALK HUMBLY - a nice hot jazz waltz, is a great addition straight from the book of Micah.

I should add that Kathy and her band are some of the nicest, most dedicated and hardest working people in bluegrass and we've enjoyed them over the years at our RiverCity Bluegrass Festival in Portland.

Kick back and enjoy. You're in for a treat.

"The lyrics are at cone bibical yet modern urban ghetto at the same time." ~ Matt Coleman, World Wide Bluegrass (www.worldwidebluegrass.com)

The latest release from Kathy Boyd & Phoenix Rising is an all gospel collection featuring 12 original numbers composed by various members of the band. Each of the musicians takes a turn on lead vocals, imparting a sense of variety to the proceedings. Featured are such titles as "Cast the First Stone", "Faith, Hope, Bluegrass Music", "Thanksgiving" and "My Little Brother". Walk Humbly is an inspirational offering of original bluegrass gospel music sure to be welcomed by aficionados of the band. ~ Bluegrass Unlimited, August 2010

This third album from Oregon-based Kathy Boyd & Phoenix Rising is an ambitious undertaking. It is their first all-gospel effort, relying solely on all-original material written by members of the band. Kathy plays bass and sings lead on Thanksgiving as well as on I Ain't Afraid to Die. Tim Crosby - fiddle, mandolin and guitar - holds credits to six of the twelve songs; his opening song, Cast the First Stone, serves well to set the tone for the entire project. Dennis Nelson - guitar and harmonica - has a background in blues and country rock; he composed three of the songs on this album. Tom Tower - Dobro and banjo - wrote two of the numbers. These musicians have varying backgrounds - bluegrass, blues and country rock - that lend a decidedly western flavor to their brand of bluegrass. ~ Bluegrass Music Profiles, September/October 2010

Beautiful Christian/Bluegrass Music
"Walk Humbly" is the most recent album from Kathy Boyd & Phoenix Rising. It is a Christian music album that professes faith and love through the medium of bluegrass music. "Cast The First Stone" has a pleasantly rambling backwoods sound to it with crystal clear and spiritually inspiring lyrics. "I Ain't Afraid To Die" is a playful and swiftly paced bluegrass number with a message that if one has faith, death will no longer be a fear. "Faith Hope Bluegrass Music" is the song that best projects what this band is about, in a lively song that relies just on the strings of a guitar and mandolin with wonderful vocals/harmonies. This album is a collection of beautiful sounding traditional bluegrass songs that stand up on their own with the ever-present addition of a loving Christian message. If Christian music and bluegrass are two things you enjoy, then "Walk Humbly" is an album that needs to be in your collection immediately.
