Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Miranda Barber’s charming debut is jazzy and pleasingly original. The piano playing chanteuse has her own individual voice.

Sweetheart’s Embrace is just as sweet as the title implies, Barber’s playful vocal set against a soft backing.

Too Damn Hard is a sassy song with a bluesy undertone. Barber’s singing is fluid and smooth, it seems as natural to her as breathing is.

Paprika Haze is jaunty and up-tempo, Barber’s lovely vocal complementing her piano playing and her bands dexterity.

A Thousand Seas is just beautiful, Barber making a lovely piano ballad.

She’s a gifted songwriter, and her way of orchestrating her songs works well. Her album’s a real treat.
