Listen to samples
I love listening to the toe-tapping, fast-paced music when I need the energy uplift to get my work done. "Looking Out", "Dying Day"and "Dreams".
The softer, slower songs of "I Will" and "Pride and Joy" are songs for a quieter, reflective time, when the mellow and earthy qualities of her voice come shining through.
If it's a love story you're after then "Caroline" is the one for you! "I'm on my way back home to you..." with Elton John in a duet.
"Before It Breaks" squeezes the tears from your very soul to overflow your heart.
"Dying Day" and "Touching the Ground" laid me flat with the flowing country vocals.
My very favorite on the CD is "If There Was No You", grabbing my heart even after reading just the title!
"That Year" is a poignant, learning from life song that hits the center of all of us.
Add in the irrepressible "Oh, Dear" and you are listening to someone you want to call "friend"! I'm already checking out venue dates in my area!

I received no monetary compensation for this review. I did receive an ecard for the CD so I could give a competent review. I did NOT receive a request for a favorable review. If I say something is good, then IT'S GOOD!
