Soul Reasons is a collection of thirteen original songs by Abby Lappen and an up-tempo bluegrass arrangement of the traditional tune Wildwood Flower. Recorded in Livingston, NY at Beefield Studios, Rhett Tyler thoughtfully produces each song on the album, with his unique understanding, world-class musicianship, and sensitivity to song writing and knowledge of the music industry. The arrangements include solo, duet, trio and ensemble, while still allowing Abby's vocals, lyrics and guitar to be prominent. Rhett's signature guitar virtuoso colors and shades. He adds texture with lap-steel, twelve string and bass guitar, banjo, drums, mandolin and Dobro. Abby gets to do all the fun stuff: whistle, tap dance and cowbell. Joining them are Otto Gardiner on bass, Jay Gerald on drums and guitar, Dick Kniss on bass, Pete O 'Brien on full traps and percussion, Lenny Post on keyboard, Dan Pagdon on bass and Jonathan Talbott on violin.
"Working along side Rhett Tyler as my producer and engineer since June, '06, the recordings on this album reflect a period of enormous growth and development for me. The arrangements and instrumentation were created through a process of drawing forth my style and technique further than perhaps I thought possible. Conquest, the first song on the album was in fact the first song we recorded in our earliest sessions. It was then that I realized the drive and commitment to extend my vocal range, harmonies and phrasing as well as knowledge of the guitar as my instrument. Rhett's direction actualized through understanding of the songs, gives way to these interpretations for which I am very thankful."
