NOTES
Whether it's a drive under Louisiana skies or a ride on a mountain railway, “Headin’ Home” is where the heart is. With polished harmonies and well oiled songwriting, The Sweet Potatoes have assembled a sonic vehicle well suited for a trip down Route 66.

The Sweet Potatoes steer us through their newest album with the sounds of Americana, bluegrass, country, folk and a tinge of gospel that will have you stomping your boot and singing along your journey.

As seasoned veterans of the entertainment industry, Kelly Macleod, Laura Hall and Rick Hall have delivered a heartfelt album that is the culmination of their combined past experiences, passions and joys. From Laura's front porch as a young woman to Kelly's back yard as a little girl their songs will make you smile, but it might be through a few tears. Kelly Macleod (vocals, guitar, writer) took to the road with Eddie Van Halen and her band “Private Life” after being discovered in Shreveport, LA. Laura Hall (vocals, guitar, writer, accordion, ukulele) best known as the pianist on "Whose Line is it Anyway,” also played with Chicago musicians Michael Smith, Buddy Mondlock, and Tim Grimm. Rick Hall (vocals, bass, harmonica) accompanies Kelly and his wife Laura. Rick has multiple television and film credits that include NCIS and K.C. Undercover. Together the three fuse their talents to form the unique and fresh sound, The Sweet Potatoes.

“Headin’ Home” has a familiarity with the opening track’s a capella harmonization in “Those Pines” The imagery in the album takes the listener on a road trip of nostalgia. We find ourselves navigating across acoustic love ballads such as “Without You” and twangy upbeat gospel pieces like “Down to the River.” The Sweet Potatoes successfully take their life's stories and create “Headin’ Home”, a relatable Americana record straight from the heart.
