It’s now time for me to settle in for the night and get comfortable, so I thought I would play something a little more traditional. On nights like this, the music of the Appalachian mountains brings me comfort and blankets my soul like my favorite tattered quilt, and that is exactly what Sam Gleaves’ does on his new album A Little While in the Wilderness.


Hailing from Wytheville, Virginia, Sam Gleaves is a young man with an old soul and an expert musician. His second release, A Little While in the Wilderness, is a shining example of traditional Appalachian music. Gleaves’ supernatural ability to musically timewarp bringing this bygone music into the present with a youthful nod is astonishing. His understanding of the music comes through easily and echoes the past generations showing a talent well beyond his tender age. His ballads and gospel songs beautifully celebrate the rich culture, traditions, and history of this particular region of the Appalachians making A Little While in the Wilderness a glorious tribute to these ancient mountains and its people.
