Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
I reviewed Kym Tuvim’s previous release, On the Mend way back in 2003 (time flies!). Her voice is deeper than I remember it being on that last one. It’s a really pleasant, smooth, and emotional voice. She does this really cool sort of lilting thing that I can’t describe, but it’s really appealing.
She reminds me at times of Tracy Chapman.
I remember being struck by her great knack for lyrics last time I reviewed her. Of course that hasn’t changed.
In My Head uses some backing vocals that make this song reminiscent of old 70s songs I love so well.
When I received this it came at around the same time as several other albums, all with a very Folky/Americana sound. So I was having trouble distinguishing this from others. So I shelved the review for awhile until I could listen to it with a clear(er) head.
I am still hearing Americana vibe here but it’s really mostly straight up folk. And good folk at that.
Another good release from Kym Tuvim.
