Once in a while, a musical project comes along that truly captures the spirit of America. It invokes the raw beauty of its landscapes and the tales of those who've walked it. Kelly Hunt’s OZARK SYMPHONY does exactly this. The album, seasoned with tales from the prairie to the deep South, offers listeners a passport to explore the heart of Americana music.

If you've ever been enchanted by the lyrical power of Lucinda Williams or felt the emotional tug of Nanci Griffith, then you're about to meet your next obsession. With OZARK SYMPHONY, Hunt carves her name alongside these legends.

The album is not just a collection of songs but a collaboration of pure musical genius. Teaming up with renowned producer Dirk Powell, the result is nothing short of a masterpiece. Powell, a maestro in a medley of music genres from Celtic to Cajun, has previously worked with icons like Joan Baez, Eric Clapton, and Jack White. With this album, he taps into a rich community of global musicians, ensuring every note echoes with authenticity.

Feel the ethereal blend of the cello played by the gifted Natalie Haas in the album’s title track. Immerse yourself in the tragic beauty of “Evangeline”, which revives a folktale as age-old as the land it speaks of. And relish the musical chemistry between Hunt and Powell in “What About Now?”, a duet that’s as tender as it is playful.

However, the most intimate track might be the final one, "Over the Mountain". Conceived on a journey between life's two greatest certainties, birth, and death, its poignant message is magnified by an impromptu recording made beside a historic cave. As dusk crept in and nature's symphony began, the moment was captured, blending effortlessly with the studio track. This isn’t just music; it’s a moment frozen in time.

OZARK SYMPHONY, featuring special guests Mike McGoldrick, Natalie Haas, Dirk Powell, and Kai Welch, promises a musical journey that transcends time. It’s more than just an album. It's the soul of America, sung by a voice that understands its deepest intricacies.

The album is set to be released on 10/13/23. However, for those who understand the worth of owning a piece of timeless art, pre-orders are now available. Make sure you're among the first to own a symphony that might just redefine Americana for a new generation.
