Album Review

Amelia Curran, from St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada, plays acoustic guitar and sings in a deep, dusky voice about personal or societal issues she has apparently lived through. There's nothing about her music remotely connected with fantasy, whimsy, or hard-edged toughness, but instead a curiosity as to the whys and wherefores of life. These original compositions in many regards go beyond folk music into blues from the perspective of one who has endured many foibles and tribulations. Yet there's hope and light at the end of the tunnel when you hear out Curran in her completed statements. From the cautionary tale "Tiny Glass Houses" with a repetitive melody and vocal harmonies, to a quaint song about "The Mistress" and the twangy "Hands on a Grain of Sand," Curran runs the gamut of tales from the seedy to the needy side. There's a timeless quality about these lyrics and the music, as they could relate to any time through the ages, while musical help from co-producer Andrew Dale (banjo, bouzouki, accordion, and vocals), Sandy Morris (Dobro), and a variety of singer friends keeps the music within traditional foundations even though the participants are contemporary. This recording won a well-deserved Juno Award for Best Roots and Traditional Album of 2009, and is recommended for people who enjoy folk music just a bit outside the box. ~ Michael G. Nastos, Rovi

Beatiful

Mad world, outlive me gave me shivers and brought tears to my eyes, not many songs have that affect. Tiny glass houses is also incredible. I love this album.

excellent

Excellent Album. À chaque écoute j'aime un peu plus. Amelia Curran est une récente découverte pour moi, je suis tombée sur son myspace par hasard et après la première écoute, j'ai été sous le charme. Les textes sont riches et intelligents et sa voix, magnifiquement chaude et juste, s'harmonise parfaitement au arrangements très folk. voilà. je suis vendue.

Worth the buy.

I listen to this by chance on CBC radio 1. I bought the album halfway through the podcast. Now I can't wait to go to a live show.
