Texas-based husband and wife duo The Kirks (Hartlee and Jordan) released their latest album, Loud Mouth Young Boy, on November 4th. The full-length project (the follow-up to their New Tyme EP,) is brimming with fiddle, steel and bass on ten songs - honest and emotional - centered around love, family, and faith including two standout tracks, “Half Full” and “Fallin’ Ain’t Flyin’”, which bookend the collection.
Loud Mouth Young Boy kicks off with the outlaw edge of "Half Full" where Jordan’s commanding, rich vocals offer a positive message in actively choosing optimism over negativity, "I don't fear death like I oughta, I was baptized in the water, and sometimes late at night I feel invincible. Someday life's gonna catch me up, and when it does I'll raise my cup and say, "You gotta live like the glass is half full."
That optimism flows through to the closing track, “Fallin’ Ain’t Flyin'” where the combination of the duo's soaring harmonies and Kent Gill's lush fiddle heightens the emotional impact of a tune that encourages taking chances, “I’d rather live and die than never spread my wings and fly.”
