This project, the Snyder Family's third release, showcases the tremendous musical, vocal and songwriting abilities of this amazing family. It features five original songs by Samantha and Zeb and a variety of songs from numerous sources and genres: Goose Down Pillow, a high-energy instrumental written by Zeb, who plays both guitar and mandolin on the track; The Perfect Sacrifice, a beautiful gospel song written by Samantha; Daddy's Gone, a song about a coal mining family written by Bill Hallock; Creekslide, a unique instrumental written by Samantha that has been a crowd favorite at live performances; An old-time fiddle favorite, Angelina Baker; And a bonus track, The Glendy Burke, a Stephen Foster favorite, featuring 5 year-old Owen Snyder. Owen is currently following Samantha's and Zeb's path by studying classical guitar in the Suzuki method. He now sometimes joins the band on stage and is anxious to become a regular as they cross the Stages of their future. Samantha recently won the prestigious bluegrass fiddle competition in the adult division at the 76th Galax Old Fiddler's Convention and Zeb, who is the current 2011 SC Guitar Champion, took first place in the adult Guitar category. Both gave amazing performances and were the hands-down crowd favorites. "I am excited about the amount of original material we were able to include on this project. I like the direction that our music is taking as we continue to develop our unique sound as a band." Zeb Snyder Sit back, close your eyes, and enjoy the amazing sounds of the Snyder Family Band.
