Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

English singer Carina Round emerges as a powerful voice on her debut album. She sings with fire and spirit and the sparse music backs her superbly.

Her lyrics paint vivid pictures in the listeners mind. Its impossible to label her music but it tends towards the folky with bluesy leanings. Comparisons with other singers could be made, but Carina Round is so special it hardly matters who influenced her.

This mini-album leaves me wanting a full length follow up soon.
