Overview

Blind Man Walking

The debut of Cadillac Sky, a quintet that includes the respected songwriter Bryan Simpson on mandolin and vocals, is a winner straight out of the gate. Writing or co-writing every song on the album, Simpson (whose songs have been cut by George Strait, Martina McBride, and Gretchen Wilson, among others) uses Blind Man Walking as a kind of coming-out party, and what a coming-out it is. He's a man who sees the hand of God moving in the material world at almost every turn, always in fascinating ways. Sometimes that movement is overt, as depicted in "Sinners Welcome," a rustic, banjo-and-guitar-driven tale, complete with a soulful gospel choir, delineating the dangers of dissolute behavior but holding out the hope of eternal salvation. Elsewhere it's more subtle, expressed most beautifully in the ancient-sounding "Homesick Angel," a wrenching account of a child's passing. In the frisky "Motel Morning," a musician¹s lament to life on the road, he prays God will not only protect him in his travels but forgive him the gypsy ways that distance him from a faithful woman at home. In the witty "Can't Trust the Weatherman," Simpson tells the story of a would-be Bonnie and Clyde foiled repeatedly by the weather turning on them at critical moments, leading to the inevitable observation, "You can't trust the weatherman" -- the meteorologist in question clearly being the man upstairs. It's the kind of original, smart, and soulful song that Bryan Simpson turns out in spades on this release.
