Album Review: Awakening by Frances Mai-Ling

Album Name: Awakening
Artist: Frances Mai-Ling
Year/Label: 2002 / Independent

Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Singer and composer Frances Mai-Ling is a very versatile performer. She has written music for Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” and worked with a magic show.

This record is another good sample of her art. She accompanies herself on piano and sings thoughtful songs on love and life.

Mai-Ling is very adept at conveying emotion with simple means. A good example of this is “Tears in my Palm” which only needs voice and piano to be affecting.

It’s an album that will get under the listener’s skin.
