Great band and a great recording ! This band is new to me, but I was very surprised. The CD is made up of 8 original vocal songs, 2 original instrumentals and 3 written by other people.

Vocally Missy Armstrong handles all the lead vocals very well, with Jeff Rose and Scott Zylstra and their harmonies blending very well together. Mandolinist Jeff Rose wrote the two instrumentals, "Three, Two, One" and "$100" featuring all these accomplished musicians. They also do a great twist on an old Johnny Nash song "I Can See Clearly Now".

The highlights in my opinion are the two original gospel songs "Ain't Gonna Wait" and "I'm Not Home Yet" plus the upbeat "Traveling The Highway Home" written by Walter Bailes and Frankie Bailes.

The CD is finished with Missy Armstrong demonstrating her dynamic vocal ability on "America the Beautiful."

I really do believe we will hear more from Detour in the future , and we will all be blessed for it.

The band is members are as follows:

Missy Armstrong / Vocals

Jeff Rose / Mandolin,Vocals

Scott Zylstra / Guitar , Vocals

Peter Knupfer / Violin

Jeremy Darrow / Double Bass

Lloyd Douglas / Banjo
