ALBUM REVIEW: High Dive Heart “Grunge Lullaby”

Nashville based husband and wife duo High Dive Heart have pushed through the creative barriers for their new record by reinventing a handful of classic tracks. Cover songs from artists such as, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkin, Pearl Jam and more are all included in the project. At time when nostalgia is in such high demand, this record is everything.

Appropriately named Grunge Lullaby, the 9 tracks that make up this album are just that. Together, their voices create a sweet blend of sounds and offer us classic songs in a new light. And we find ourselves completely invested.

Although they are grunge, alternative rock tracks, hints of indie country shine through. With one half of High Dive Heart being a past member off the country group The JaneDear Girls, the story telling element comes natural. Nelly Joy has found her voice, style and confidence with this record, and it sounds effortless. Now paired with husband Jason Reeves, the couple is musically unstoppable.

People have been covering these songs for years, however, I have yet to hear two voices who truly make me stop and listen. Words that at one point could have been missed are clear, and the original emotion remains, only now it is heightened.

Grunge Lullaby includes covers of Pearl Jam’s “One Last Kiss”, The Verve Pipe’s “The Freshmen”, and the first single off the record is Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”.

High Dive Heart created an album that you could listen to all day, and not even realize that time has passed. So sit back and melt into their whimsical lullabies, and soak up their flawless harmonies, as you stream their full record right here.

There was no specific event that made me fall in love with country music, it was simply the style that hit me the hardest. I’ve been involved with music from a young age and it has helped get to where I am today. I graduated Albright College with a degree in Music Business and currently work in New York City with Music Licensing. When I’m not working with music, you can find me listening to it, watching it, or playing it. I consider myself lucky when I look back at the various concerts I’ve attended, from classics such as Brooks & Dunn and George Strait, to the incredible new talents of Eric Church and The Band Perry. It only makes me want more. Music is something I can always count on and I’m excited to have the opportunity to share this love with all of you!
