Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
Since I am not familiar with much country music. I can’t compare her to anyone currently making music in this genre. But these songs seem to be about what we all associate with country music: whiskey, cowboys, fighting and runnin’ from the law.
She reminds me of more old country like Dolly and Patsy than the newer stuff like Shania. Which is a compliment. There also is a touch of bluegrass with the occasional banjo. There are also some nice guitar parts. A few of these songs are waltzes (or when speeded up, polkas, that is that they are in 3/3 time).
“Coming Home” is a catchy number, while “Billy West” is your classic country story song.
A word about production…the CD is well done and the packaging looks good, nice photography. I just wish they had included the lyrics. I am one of those people that need to look at the words while I’m listening to get the full effect and I know I’m not the only one.
I would say that if you like catchy tunes, and a classic style country voice (a bit nasal and with lots of swooping but clear and strong), you will like this one.
