Album Review

The mesmerizing debut outing of 24-year-old Rosie Thomas tempers folk, country, and alternative rock via sparse arrangements built upon simple acoustic guitar and piano motifs. Like Joni Mitchell, Tori Amos, and Paula Cole, Thomas paints vivid pictures with her storytelling prose, especially on "Wedding Day" and "Lorriane," which bemoan the loss of love with an optimistic twist. Documenting the disconsolate pain of separation on "Farewell," Thomas' cracking falsetto punctuates each phrase and whisper until a snippet of childhood soundbites from the artist draws the dirge to a satisfactory conclusion. Her compelling application of legato harmonies on cello to embellish the descending chord progressions of "Run" and "Bicycle Tricycle" displays Thomas' intimate, haunting, and melodic songcraft at its strongest. A fine start for a promising career.

Rosie Thomas is an artist of nerve- shattering fragility and honesty, yet it is those very qualities that convey a genuine charm and strength. Four Dollar Shoes is a perfect start to this delightfull album. Ironically, this is the same Rosie Thomas 'stand up comedienne' and this cool 'chick' has also toured with Bryan Ferry...but then again what female hasn't. Lovely stuff.
