Fortunately for us, The Quiet American pull it off. A concept album centered on the traditional folk song, Wild Bill Jones explores the characters' backstories, just as it wends its way through the back channels of Americana music.
The Quiet American is a husband-and-wife duo. Aaron Keim is no stranger to folk music, having served time with the Boulder Acoustic Society, a beloved Colorado-based roots band. His wife, Nicole, is lending her immense talents to his in their new project.
This is an album that needs to be played all the way through; while each song is lovely, its impact is really dependent on the songs surrounding it. Wild Bill Jones is not meant for the iPod age. But it is meant for your ears and your home.
