Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

Serah’s music is everything it’s been described as: ethereal, eclectic, emotional and beautiful.

She has a lovely voice that suits the music well. “Pieces of Dreams” stands out to me. It has a nice swaying beat and warm feeling.

“Crazy Love” has a cool African intro and goes into a sweet pop song.

Title track “Late Harvest” is also gorgeous. With many layers and backing vocals.

Think Sarah McLachlan with more of a “world beat”…perhaps an African Loreena McKennitt. Light some candles and get into Serah’s world.

Comments: Rating: 4 Stars
I agree wholeheartedly, although my personal favorite is “Psalm Song” – I love her use of African music instead of the same old gaelic influences I am used to hearing in new age music. This is a beautiful album and you don’t have to be “into” new age to appreciate it – I’m giving it to my mom and aunt for the holidays this year.
