Editorial Reviews

Amelia Curran is a seeker. Nearly a decade ago she left St. John's for Halifax, but still pines for Newfoundland every single day. With a number of East Coast Music Award nominations and an extensive discography, including: War Brides, Lullaby for Barflies, Trip Down Little Road, and Barricade, Curran knew it was finally time to make a record at home. Over the past two years she recorded with Don Ellis in various caverns in St. John's, the city of legends, from the abandoned CBC building on Duckworth Street to an old farm house on the fringes of town.

'Hunter, Hunter' is the 5th. album from Canadian singer-songwriter Amelia Curran. I bought her previous album, 'War Brides', because I liked her voice so much - and, without a doubt, it is an album of fine songs and accomplished playing also. However, as it turned out, I thought that album was somewhat hit and miss in terms of its instrumental arrangements and production/mixing; it also sounds rather loud - not what I'd expect from an acoustic folk album. The instrumental accompaniment on 'Hunter, Hunter' is more stripped back and the playing is less obtrusive, allowing the songs and Amelia's delivery of them to take centre stage. Although 'Hunter, Hunter' is an album of contemporary folk music, its simple acoustic arrangements and sparse (occasionally slightly eerie and desolate) sound imbue it with an almost traditional air and, most certainly, a reflective and wistful mood. 'The Mistress' has a touch of blues about it, and there's a swing-jazz flavour to the rhythms on 'The Company Store' and 'The Dozens'.

Amelia possesses a singularly distinctive voice - it's a simmering and seductive husky alto, combined with a moderately terse style of phrasing. Her songs are slow to medium tempo ('Wrecking Ball' is a little more up-tempo), and they are ones that benefit from repeated listening - with melodies that are subtle rather than 'instant'. She uses sharp lyrics to circumscribe themes of personal experiences - their meaning may not be fully obvious, but the imagery is powerful. Although having said this, I found a good few of the songs to be fairly accessible even upon first hearing them.

I cannot believe no one has commented yet. Amelia Curran is one of the finest contemporary singer/songwriters around. This album is beautiful and you won't regret buying it. She won a well deserved Juno for this album. Her other album War Brides is also wonderful. She is witty, warm and possessed of a smoky gorgeous voice.Check it out.

If you enjoy hearing a soft and sweet voice, and someone frailing on a banjo, this album is for you.! By far one one my best buys. I love the way that Amelia phrases her words.

Love Amelia's metzo-quality sound. Thought provoking lyrics too. I could imagine so clearly the scenarios she painted in song. Awesome!
