Talented young bluegrass up-and-comer!
Playing Time – 34:33 -- Trey Hensley is a talented young guitarist and singer who has obtained the backing of the reputable Copper Creek label. He’s released one album prior to this one, and Trey has found great support from family and friends like Tom T. and Dixie Hall. Trey’s friends (referred to as “Drivin’ Force”) who appear on this CD with him include G.C. Matlock (rhythm guitar), Susie Keys (bass, vocals), Jeffrey Orr (vocals), Tommy Austin (mandolin, vocals), Jerry Keys (banjo), Barry Bales (bass), Keith Williams (fiddle, vocals), Hunter Berry (fiddle), Tim Stafford (vocals), and Paul Williams (vocals). Performing since the age of twelve, Trey has been described as “a stand-up nice young man with a love for bluegrass music.” Trey sings with a pleasant voice that will only get better as he matures and works with others. The song listing in the CD’s jacket and on the CD’s back is in error. “You Can Have Her” appears at track six although liner notes put that song at track nine (which actually is “Theme Time”). Trey’s aptitude for guitar-picking is especially noteworthy. He also shows that he likes old standards, some of which have been recorded extensively over the years. His delivery is relaxed, and such cuts as “Backin' to Birmingham,” “Forsaken Love,” “Give Mother My Crown,” and “Legend of the Johnson Boys” would be very deserving of airplay. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for this bluegrass up-and-comer. The music’s clearly in Trey Hensley’s blood. (Joe Ross, staff writer, Bluegrass Now)Was this review helpful?
