Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
Amy Regan has been classically trained vocally since age 11 and taught herself piano too. Her style might be described as a sort of light rock with a bluesy edge. But there’s also a jazzy aspect on some songs too, like Nighttime Bird.
So in Love is a good track. It has an interesting melody and she makes good use of the crescendo and decrescendo, which I always love.
I really like Carry On, it’s stopped me a few times while I’ve had this in rotation. I think my player really likes this one too since it plays it more than any of her others. It’s a toe-tapper.
Her voice is pure and clear and lovely to listen to. It especially stands out on the title track.
It’s a short CD (or a longish EP) but it’s filled with some really good stuff.
