Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

Once again, and EP that I wish was twice as long!

Cynthia Lin has a nice sound. It’s almost classic folky ala Joni, Joan and the like. She makes nice use of the minor chords and notes.

Her voice soars beautifully over the nice finger picking style guitar playing. She also uses some nice background vocals.

These are nice well-written folk songs and the production is very professional as well.

If you like smooth pleasing folky songs with lovely vocals this is a good pick.

There’s only 5 songs and since I like them all, I won’t go with my standard “stand out songs” here. They’re really all good.
