WINNER OF THE 2008 IBMA AWARD FOR FEMALE VOCALIST OF THE YEAR
Over the past decade, women have risen to the forefront in bluegrass music - a genre that traditionally has been a bastion for male players and singers - and it’s no exaggeration to say that some of the most interesting and important bluegrass music today is being created by female-led bands. Dale Ann Bradley is one of bluegrass music’s hidden treasures, a native of Kentucky who grew up immersed in the culture and tradition of the music and who is gifted with one of the most natural and expressive voices bluegrass has ever known. Catch Tomorrow, Bradley’s third solo album (and her first for Compass Records), establishes the singer on the national stage as one of the most important talents in modern bluegrass.
Catch Tomorrow showcases Bradley in the company of some very special guests including Jim Lauderdale, Tim O’Brien, Jeff White, Steve Gulley (Mountain Heart) and producer Alison Brown. Standout tracks include an exquisite gospel duet with Larry Sparks on "Pass Me Not", a traditional country duet with Marty Raybon (Shenandoah) on "Holding on to Nothing" and a collaboration with Irish super group Lunasa. She also delivers some hard driving bluegrass on "Run Rufus Run" (co-written with bassist Vicki Simmons), "Julia Belle," and the soon-to-be classic "Rita Mae," all with the help of her past and current band mates including Michael Cleveland and Jesse Brock.
