Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Rhonda Stakich’ record starts with the Beatles-y strains of the title track and it’s catchy and likeable. The harmonies are stunning.

“Simple Matters” is a gorgeous little song, Stakich has a clear, lovely voice and her words are clever. She reminds me of Suzanne Vega here.

“Breakin’ the Tie” has a bluesy slant to it and a nice, half-spoken vocal. It sounds fluid and easy on the ear.

A cover of Dylan’s “Guess I’m Doin’ Fine” is sweet and beautifully delivered.

Rhonda Stakich’ record is short, but all of it’s great.
