Free Friday: Cheyenne Marie Mize and Bonnie “Prince” Billy - "Among The Gold"

Cheyenne Marie Mize and fellow Louisville native, indie-folk pioneer Bonnie "Prince" Billy have recorded an EP of their renditions of American parlor music originally recorded in the 19th century. The timeless set of duets, Among The Gold is being released as a free download in anticipation of the September release of her debut solo album Before Lately. Cheyenne has also collaborated and toured with Jim James, Ben Sollee and Daniel Martin Moore as a vocalist and violinist.

With minimal instrumental accompaniment, Mize and Billy let their beautiful voices guide these intimate and haunting tales from long ago. The two singers trade off lead vocals on the opener "Only A Dream", a lullaby of love lost. The waltzing "Beautiful Dreamer" features Cheyenne's violin playing and olde-timey melodies. Another standout is "Kiss Me Again", a sweet serenade seemingly perfect for their seamless harmonies.
