Not Celtic and not folk either, but hey, the Irish singer-songwriter’s third album just made me feel good when taking a walk in the nice spring air yesterday.
The album features blue-eyed Irish soul, singer-songwriter stuff, folksier tunes and some laid back jazz colors. Her singing voice is soft and sensitive rather than Aretha-style strong but she is expressive and open, very disarming. And the songs are either good or very good. The soul songs Strength To Be Strong and Bring You Back To Me I really like, and the closing, Awakening, is a really nice wee small hours mood piece. Good stuff all 🙂
