Karen Savoca - Promise
This is an excellent album. Karen and partner Pete Heitzman have in the past worked with Greg Brown and garnered some critical acknowledgement through previous album The Dirt in 2005.
This latest album features Karen's poetic lyricism [and storytelling], a range of country and funky skewed songs that are all appealing, and Karen's sparkling, chrystal-clear vocal. Great sustained background accompaniment from Heitzman [some straightforward but foot-stompin' guitar playing on Gonna Love You, electric and acoustic].
A completely cool album.
