An exceptional follow-up to their 2014 debut collaboration “This Is Happening”, the new album from Riddle & The Stars titled “New Coastline”, is truly a reason to celebrate the music making union forged between Australian singer songwriter Ben Riddle and Huntington Beach, California based The Fallen Stars (husband and wife duo Bobbo and Tracy Byrnes).
All 3 singers are featured via memorable performances, with their blended voices providing an additional winning element across the disc, particularly on the the beautiful nugget “When We Ride”.
Riddle brings a distintive singer songwriter touch to the proceedings, notable on the reflective folk rocker “Running Back To You” and the yearning “Tracks”.
Bobbo Byrnes leads the collective through the rousing root’s rocker “I May Never Know” and an affecting take on the John Prine gem “Mexican Home”.
Tracy Byrnes sings the elegiac “Apples & Knives”, and the authentic country-styled “Valentine’s Day”.
