The collection of songs on the album fuses elements of southern rock with outlaw and old school country. While the depth filled lyrics are the true focus of this album, it’s Croix smooth yet powerful vocals that add that extra honest touch to the songs. As you listen to the songs on Cumberland Jail, you take a journey with Croix, who not only wrote, produced and sang on every track he also played multiple instruments throughout song set. The album was mixed by AJ Croix and Malcolm Burn (Emmylou Harris Bob Dylan.) Also lending their talents is Jimmy Somma on Electric guitar, Bill LaGreca on bass and Steve Decker on drums.
Cumberland Jail might be eclectic in its style, but the early country influences stand out. There is a tip of the hat to Wille Nelson in the song “Goodbye Nashville” and a little Waylon Jennings on the song “Cumberland Jail” with a bit of George Jones in “I’d Go Dry.”
