Neptune’s Car | Contemporary Folk Duo

A beautiful blend of country and folk . . . Holly’s vocals are tender, warm and quite evoc-
ative with each song taking the form of a story or tale. Steve’s guitar playing complements Holly’s vocals perfectly giving each of the songs depth and character . . . it is worth taking time to listen to the lyrics as they hold the key to this feast of musical delights . . . there are hints of Nickel Creek and Alison Krauss but Neptune’s Car do not need to be compared to any other artists. This is a strong musical duo whose music can stand on its own two feet
. . . The songs are beautiful and the overall atmosphere created is perfect.
