"... the arrangements are a bit more lush, with strings prominent on several tracks."
- USA Today

"... (first single Won't Go Back) retains the rootsy feel of Martin and Brickell's earlier collaborations but adds a new full band folk-rock feel and even a thumping electronica bridge."
- Rolling Stone

"... Edie Brickell (has) one of Americana's most criminally underrated voices ... a more lighthearted affair than their more subdued debut ... true to the title, the duo's dynamic now seems all the more intuitive."
- Exclaim!

"... a follow-up that’s every bit as charming and melodious as their first ... (proves) Martin’s musical triumph was no mere fluke ... the real accomplishment comes via the bond the pair have established ... the most winsome tunes find Martin and Brickell effecting their mellow mood with only the barest accompaniment, putting the sentiment across all on their own."
- PopMatters.com

Grammy-winning team Steve Martin and Edie Brickell continue their collaboration with So Familiar, their second studio album. Produced once again by Peter Asher, these songs showcase an organic, evolving relationship that brings out new creative strengths in Martin's inventive, expressive five-string banjo work and Brickell's distinctive vocals. The two are joined by several guests including Béla Fleck, Mike Einziger of Incubus and Martin's own band the Steep Canyon Rangers.

"I guess this is the logical sequel to the first album, but it's also different in a lot of ways. It sounds bigger and wider and has a lush feeling that I really like ... Edie's voice sounds beautiful with these arrangements ... Peter really had a vision and he came up with some wonderful things."
- Steve Martin

"I'm very lucky that Steve offered me a way out of empty nest syndrome. He encourages me; he brings out my best. That's about as exciting as it gets."
- Edie Brickell

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
