Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

Emily Rodgers has a lovely voice and puts it to good use on this minialbum. She has a country-ish twang to her singing and the music is akin to Cowboy Junkies and Gillian Welch.

“Going Away” is dreamy and sad with lovely guitar.

“Alone” is pretty harsh on its subject. “You loved your reflection in my eyes. Magnified three times your natural size” she sings. The downcast melody suits it.

“Lay You Down” is tender and devotional. Rodgers sings angelically on it.

“Winter” is a song where Megan Williams violin shines.

This is a great little album and I hope more is in store.
