Album Review

Jennifer Leonhardt's Minstrel's Daughter is a tribute to her parents, a statement of innocence and wonder wrapped around gratitude. Singing with compassion, she can also also rock out, as on the child-like "Make It the Mountain," or wax poetic during the poignant "Neruda." Perhaps still trying to find her personal style, Leonhardt shows much potential while touching on folk-chamber parameters for this intriguing and mysterious music. ~ Michael G. Nastos, Rovi

Customer Reviews

A protest/concept album.

On first listen this sounds like a hastily put together demo. But after getting through the very bare bones production and raw sound quality, you find that the songs are really beautiful, and that the purpose of the record is to showcase a very real place and time rather than slick studio work.This album shows that there are variables in music that cannot be controlled and it tries it's best to capitalize on first takes and strange circumstances. Through this album you can see the glorious ups of a relationship's beginning and the dismal low's of it's end. This song protests the typical production of an album by including all of the bad with the good which makes it feel more real and raw. Many of the song arrangements are experimented with as well turning typical folk/country formats into something more original and esoteric. Basically this record takes a lot of chances while throwing away any preconcieved notions of how a record is made, for better and for worse.


If you are someone who needs slick production in their music, this may not be the record for you. But if you can appreciate honest, original songwriting that blends indie and lo-fi folk with twinges of country then this record will be a welcome addition to your collection. Sparse instrumentation and lush vocals make Minstrel's Daughter a perfect late night chill out record.
