Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Lisa Knapp records folk songs with a slight twist. There’s a modern production and an emphasis on her stunning vocals.

“Blacksmith” gets rendered lovingly and with a wonderful vocal.

“Beggar Beggar” is a sweet and lovely version with a nice mood even if the tale is sad. Knapp’s vocal presence reminds me of the equally unaffected Kathryn Williams.

The title song uses a string arrangement beautifully and gives the song real soul.

Knapp’s own song “Little Bird” is summery and sweet.

Lisa Knapp’s debut is a refreshing listen.
