Editorial Reviews

Lindsay Mac is characterized by playing the cello much like a guitar or a bass, plucking, strumming AND bowing. This disc is an eclectic album sure to be enjoyed by fans of alternative folk, jazz and pop. Lindsay's music has been compared to Suzanne Vega, Ani Difranco and Ray LaMontagne, but her sound is uniquely her own!

5.0 out of 5 stars Music Outside The Box January 8, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I first heard Lindsay Mac's music through a folk compilation CD last year and knew right then and there that I had to purchase her CDs. Fresh vocals mixed with the beautiful music of her cello makes an excellent blend in today's world of cookie cutter musicians with no originality. For me, it is hard to label her music because she covers so many genres: jazz, folk, pop, classical, and possibly more. That is what makes a great musician in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars An exceptional first album June 27, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Lucy lives a mundane modern life, but she remembers her dreams of something better. Lindsay Mac tells her story in the opening track of "Small Revolution" -- and, I confess, I might have passed it by if it weren't for the gypsy-inflected cello that dips and soars through the music. Lindsay isn't just telling me about Lucy's dreams, she's showing them to me.

Lindsay is a dedicated singer-songwriter in a folk-pop vein and with various jazz and funk influences readily apparent. Her voice -- strong, sweet and cynical, and very expressive -- is not her only instrument, however; she adds spice to her arrangements with plucked and bowed cello, an unusual but decisive choice that makes her songs especially fresh. She is classically trained, but delightfully free of musical inhibitions.

With one exception, the songs here are originals, and Lindsay crafts stories and moods that are both entertaining and sophisticated. Lindsay follows "Lucy" with more songs that court a theme of personal freedom. "Use Me," written by Bill Withers, is a funky, liberated approach to sexual gratification, while "Nowhere" introduces us to the manager of a remote convenience store who wishes for bigger, better and finer things in life. "Glass Jar" is a confused plea for self-growth. On the title track, Lindsay uses a Peter Pan metaphor to take flight from the mundane.

There is romance here, too, and nowhere does Lindsay express it so well as she does on "Pale Reflection." The soft, bittersweet song describes a man whose happy memories of his late wife are sparked by the scent of dish soap -- "So he took a hand of the bubbles he would have placed upon her head/And turned down the lights and danced alone that night instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly original in every respect. June 11, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Frankly, I don't know what kind of music this is but it is an extraordinary concept, voice and production. The lyrics make you think, the arrangements exceptional because Ms. Mac accompanies herself on the 'cello. The the greatest thing about this recording is the power and emotional depth of Ms. Mac's voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow April 19, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A great album. It's great when an artist uses an instrument in a unique way but still makes music that is a approachable. She does a very good job of using the music to emphasize the emotion of the lyrics. Glass jar is a good example. If you like Michael Hedges or Leo Kotke but are looking for something unique this will be a satisfiying choice.
