    Alternative country has become so "in," it's even found a home in L.A. thanks to Shurman. While the band has been active for some time, Jubilee will serve as the band's introduction for many listeners. Released on Vanguard, the album combines the songs and vocals of Aaron Beavers with a four-piece band format for solid, unadorned country-rock. Even five songs into the album, it's clear that Beavers, drummer Damon Allen, guitarist Jason Moore, and bassist Keith Hanna play well together, and the set list is strong. While some material leans closer to country ("Drownin'") and other material leans toward rock ("I Got U Babe, Pt. 3"), the overall feel of the album is cohesive. The only negative observations one might offer is that the band, in spite of its talents, reminds one of a number of other alternative bands. While Beavers' vocals might have been described as "heartfelt" in 1995, today his voice just sounds familiar. While the band's combination of country and rock would have sounded innovative in 1995, today it qualifies as recognizable alternative country. For those familiar with the nuances of the genre, however, Shurman's songwriting and synchronicity will carve out a distinct place for the band on the contemporary music scene. ~ Ronnie D.
