Laura follows up her trad/funk release, NeGrass, with 2009's The Sweeter The Juice. Here, Laura collaborates with Orville Johnson, her performance partner of the previous few years. Orville is a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist best known for his exemplary blues/country/folk picking. This release features traditional gospel, follk and country tunes, Civil Rights era anthems and a few of Laura's originals. This is a duet recording that sounds like a full band with Orville playing an array of string instruments and both adding vocals to each other's tracks. The Sweeter The Juice is a great introduction to some older traditional music produced with a fresh take.
