Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

A few months ago we featured an article and interview with Mieka Pauly conducted by our contributor, Lauren Jonik. [see here]
So I was aware of her, just hadn’t heard her music until now. Wow, she’s really talented.

This album is pretty rockin’. The songs are full sounding with lots going on and her great gutsy voice.

She takes it down a notch on Devil’s Got My Secret and you can really hear the power in her voice.

The song that inspires the album title, Run (where she says ‘Elijah Drop Your Gun’) is lovely. It shows her smoky voice beautifully.

This is a great release and I’m sure it will pop up on many a year-end list.
