If Bernard Fanning's identity weren't so well documented as frontman for Powderfinger (a hard-rocking band popular in its native Australia for more than a decade), one might suspect it was a pseudonym allowing Ryan Adams to release even more albums on Lost Highway. Like the prolific Adams, Fanning combines a yearning vocal reediness with a penchant for country-tinged, acoustic-electric arrangements steeped in the influence of the 1970s. Fiddle, mandolin, piano, lap steel, and harmonica frame his bittersweet balladry, with much of the midtempo material built around the strum of an acoustic guitar. Yet the strength of Fanning's songs and suppleness of his vocals distinguish him from the run of the alt-country mill, and Tchad Blake's coproduction gives the sound a homespun shimmer. Among the highlights, the gentle harmonies of "Down to the River" build to a stirring, electric crescendo, the harder edge of "Which Way Home?" evokes his days in a rock band, and the reflective intimacy of "Watch Over Me" provides a fitting finale. --Don McLeese



Bernard Fanning is best known as the lead singer/songwriter of Australia's Powderfinger, but on his first solo album he's jettisoned his band's radio-friendly power pop for vintage country-folk, circa 1971. And "country-folk" really is the operative term here, not alt-country, Americana, or any other hip label that may have originated in the past 20 years, because Bernard Fanning's influences are strictly old school. Like a reprise of Stephen Stills' Manassas or Elton John's Tumbleweed Connection, Fanning's solo debut is awash in well-constructed pop songs that are dressed up with mandolins, Dobros, and fiddles. There's a country veneer, but scratch beneath the surface and you'll find some sturdy pop hooks and the kind of laid-back hippie sentiments that wouldn't sound out of place on early-'70s FM radio. Co-produced by Fanning and Tchad Blake (Tom Waits, Crowded House, Peter Gabriel), Tea & Sympathy's 14 songs span the classic country-folk spectrum. The opening "Thrill Is Gone" and later "Hope & Validation" both feature the kind of yearning, soaring vocals and infectious melodies that John tossed off regularly early in his career, while lead single "Wish You Well" and "Sleeping Rough" strongly recall Stills' work, both solo and with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. "Wash Me Clean" and closing track "Watch Over Me" show off Fanning's sensitive folkie side, all Jackson Browne earnestness and regret. Fanning is a fine, soulful singer, sounding at times remarkably like an Australian Stephen Stills, and his vocal presence alone merits attention.
