Gwyneth Herbert – All The Ghosts

$47.50

Gwyneth Herbert, whose sublime version of Neil Young’s “Only Love Can Break Your Heart” appeared on the soundtrack to 2009 Rom-Com smash “Leap Year” has been hailed as a priceless talent. A quirky, original singer-songwriter, inspired as much by Janis Ian and Joni Mitchell, as by Billie Holiday or Nina Simone. Her latest collection, “All The Ghosts” features ten terrific songs, which speak to you directly, without forethought for genre or category. In their melodic immediacy and observational characterization, you might hear the Lennon-McCartney of “Sgt Pepper”, or the Ray Davies of “Lola”, rather than any jazz stereotype.
