With their album ‘Dearheart’ Andy Babb and Lara Elle bring a true and honest positivity with their uplifting acoustic Pop Folk sound. Audience members describe attending their shows as ‘Church, without all the dogma’ and their self categorized genre of musical medicine is spot on. ‘One Spirit’ opens up the album and acts as more than a confessional of the unity of romantic love. The song’s spiritual message resonates outside of their personal microcosm and into the larger inter-connection of all beings as one spirit. The stripped down minimal acoustic sound allows for a sharp piercing focus on the profundity of the lyrics. ‘So Much’ and ‘You Are Love’ are encouraging and inspirational, Andy Babb and Lara Elle have knack for a directness in their message. Each song sounds as if they are speaking directly to the listener face to face with a tailor-made message based off the happenings in their own personal life. Hailing from Denver, Colorado the duo’s debut collaboration was actually recorded in Bangkok, Thailand. Taking advantage of the low costs – high quality professional recording opportunities their music blossomed, along with their love, as Andy proposed to Lara. The energy can be felt on ‘Dearheart’ immediately, the transcendent feeling travels with the music and the frequency is received on each track. ‘Seems To Me (Hallelujah)’ continues the message of connection and understanding as a means to resolve conflicts; how we have more in common than the minute superficial differences that begin these superfluous conflicts and simple interactions can be the solution. The poetic and powerful lyrics on ‘Dearheart’ are just as astounding as the instrumentation and vocal performances. ‘Saddle Up’ concludes the album with a western style soundscape and a feel good story as an optimistic allegory for the journey of life.
