Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

Rebekah Jordan was Collected Sounds’ artist of the month for July 2005 and how well deserved. This is one talented lady.

These songs are very well written. They’re a nice glimpse into what this artist has to offer. Catchy and inspirational (but not at all sappy).

Her voice is beautiful, soothing, the kind you could listen all day. She’s so skilled at portraying emotion. These songs are just dripping with soul. I don’t mean “soul music” but that kind of conviction that seeps inside the listener.

The quality of her voice is especially evident on “The Art of Losing” which is a gorgeous song.

“Lovely Life” shows her funkier side.

All these songs are good actually. I like how she showcases the piano on “Sweet Here After” (but you know me, I’m a piano slut).

“Dreams” is the Fleetwood Mac cover and it’s quite nice. I’ve never really loved that band, so I prefer this version to the original.

This is a great little recording but I want MORE!! Hopefully we’ll see a full length soon.
