Katy Moffatt is blessed with one of those rare voices in music. Equally at home with Country, Rock, Blues, and Jazz, hers is a voice that shines as big and clear as mountain air and is at the same time as elegantly sublime as a glass of fine wine. Those familiar with Moffatt's music know that she is one of those singer songwriters who helped invent Country Rock back in the 70's and that almost all of the music we listen to on the radio today has in one way or another been influenced by artists like her. On this CD, mostly an album of covers, Moffatt sings with an understated simplicity that makes songs like old standards "You Don't Know Me" and "Miss Otis Regrets" seem totally brand new. Three of the songs are written by Moffatt and her long time partner, Tom Russell and contain a depth and sophistication that is not often found in music today . The production is simple and spare - proving that it doesn't take a lot to make good music burn brightly.
