Album Name: Foreword
Artist: Elana Arian
Year/Label: 2005 / Independent
Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
Dang, another great CD that’s less than full-length!
Elana Arian has a sweet comfortable voice that sounds perfect singing these well-written jazzy folk tunes.
“I Know What You’re Doing” has a great old time jazz sound to it. Guess what? Her voice is a great match for this genre as well.
There is some beautiful guitar finger picking on “This Time”. This track felt like a friend after the second listen. Great melody, great lyrics, she has a knack for knowing what words click together. I wish everyone could hear this one.
“Anyway” is also gorgeous.
I can’t wait to hear more from this talented woman.
