So The Goat Rodeo Sessions isn’t the name of a band. It’s a collaborative album featuring Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile from 2011. I heard it earlier this year on my local university’s radio station. It’s been on my iTunes wishlist for months. My guy recently got us a subscription to Sony Music Unlimited ($12/year for Playstation Plus subscribers). I was thrilled to find this song on there and remembered all over again why it was on my wishlist.
Though this is an amazing group of musicians, it’s the guest vocalist Aoife O’Donovan on “No One But You” that shines for me most. Her voice is sweet, clear and haunting on this track. This is one of those songs that makes me cry. Those are always my favorites and thus it’s my latest music obsession.
