Expecting Rain

Expecting Rain - Birthday Girl [highly rec'd!]
Lately it seems all good things folk- and country-related on TGH come out of Ohio. Expecting Rain, hailing from Columbus [correction: Cleveland], is no exception. "Birthday Girl" begins with a simple strummed chord on an acoustic guitar and I teeter on the edge of "oh no, not another Creedence Clearwater-wannabe" until the good-naturedly pop-py piano enters in, soon to be joined by Nick Tolar's simple, warm tenor. The country instrumentation develops ever so carefully, and the refrain of "Birthday Girl" is ever-so-slightly sweet without delving into bubblegum cliches.
