Granville Automatic Releases Album of Civil War-Inspired Songs

Granville Automatic, featuring longtime Atlanta singer/songwriters Elizabeth Elkins and Vanessa Olivarez (both currently based in Nashville), has released an album of songs inspired by Civil War battles, and has filmed videos for many of the meticulously researched songs from it in the places that inspired them.

Produced by Gary Maurer of the band Hem, An Army Without Music: Civil War Stories from Hallowed Ground even includes a song written about one of Elkins’ own ancestors, a Confederate solder who deserted on the first day of Gettysburg and walked all the way home to his wife in North Carolina.
