Jeff Black - Tin Lily
"A tin lily is just what it says—and much more than it seems. A thin piece of metal shaped in the petals of a delicate flower, it's designed to take a soft glow, often from a candle, and give it more shine. It's a hard element that does what it can to spread something as ethereal yet as essential as light."

Every once in a while a truly great songwriter comes along and demands your attention.
Jeff Black’s fourth CD, “Tin Lily” is a stunning collection of powerful songs from this insightful songwriter. Many of you may be familiar with the songs of Jeff Black through his work with other artists. Mandolinist Sam Bush, whose last album was named after his cover of Black's song "King of the World," has recorded other songs written by Jeff Black. Sam Bush’s cover of Black’s “Same Old River” has remained in rotation on my player for many years. Jeff Black has collaborated with quite a diverse assortment of artists in the past: from Wilco to Iris Dement, Sam Bush to Blackhawk. His songs have been covered by an equally impressive list: Waylon Jennings, Sam Bush, Lisa Brokop, Jo-El Sonnier, and many others.
Like the tin lily he named the CD after, Jeff Black’s songs shine a light on the experiences and relationships of life’s journey. His songs are filled with a passion for the trials and tribulations of everyday life and are meant to be interpreted by each listener in his or her own personal way.
