A truly authentic and beautiful historical listening experience
Transplants is a stunning album, rich in its story-telling beauty. Each song shows the perfection she aspired for and the gorgeous music is audible proof of that time and effort she had taken.
In Amelia's voice you get a truly authentic Irish musical experience and this music fills your heart with both the joyful beauty of Ireland's shore while at the same time the mournful heartache of a soul who misses those shores with a passion: you hear and feel it all. I have said before and will continue to say to this day; Amelia is as authentic antiquated Irish as you can get and Transplants is proof positive of that.
I would be remiss if I neglect to mention an integral part of this musical journey in Ray Frank's stellar guitar mastery. His skills are in the upper echelon of the greatest of guitar players and compliment Amelia's voice perfectly. I swear that there are times when I can't tell if she's harmonising with background vocals or his long lonesome notes as he masterfully helps to build the authenticity of this music.
Please, not only treat yourself with this lovely take of Irish history through song by picking up your own copy of Transplants, but support independent artists by buying their music and in doing so allow them to make more.
Heartfelt and well sung Irish music.
Amelia Hogan Brings a Lost Art to Life
It's very unusual to find this kind of a voice even in the wilds of Ireland, because the art of singing the traditional ballad is not as popular as modern songs. But the artistry and craft of singing that Amelia is able to convey is exquisite. The longing, the sadness, the beauty of this ancient art is rendered with a voice that rings true down the ages and transports us to a time when skill was prized amidst the vast silence because there was no television, no internet and no overabundance of noisome distractions...
