Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Amy Meyers’ new CD starts with the brilliant song “Crossing” in which Meyers somehow makes an oddly paced track sound good.

She continues with less complicated, but equally good songs. Meyers makes folk influenced pop with smart lyrics and memorable tunes.

My favourite line is “Jesus was a man who walked all over the land. I would say he knew his geography well”(“Jesus was a Man”).

Meyers has a few thing in common with Shawn Colvin, but she is a bit edgier. This makes “Crossing a worthwhile listen.
