Good Thing Going (Rounder, 2008)
One of the finest bluegrass mandolinists in the United States is musician and songwriter Rhonda Vincent . She is not only a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist, but she has an excellent vocal ability as well, with a clearly recognizable style that uses vocal inflections employed by veteran bluegrass and old time singers.
On Good Thing Going, Vincent treats the listener to a delightful collection of American roots music that includes bluegrass, western swing, and radio friendly country ballads, mixing traditional techniques with modern stylings.
The album features the road band the Rage on several tracks. Vincent also invited several special guests, including Jesse McReynolds (Jim &Jesse), Russell Moore (III Tyme Out), Bryan Sutton, Becky Issacs, Kathy Chiavola and James Stroud. The album was co-produced by Rhonda and her brother Darrin Vincent (of Dailey & Vincent) at Rhonda’s own studio.
