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!

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.

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.

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.

A friend of mine played me this CD last month, and I haven't stopped listening to it since. Even after what must be a thousand times by now, every time I hear it, I notice something new and different in this eclectic group of songs - whether it's a witty or wise lyric, or an unexpected instrument artfully layered into the mix.

I just can't seem to get tired of this CD. It's a breath of fresh air to find an artist doing something so creative - seriously, who else plucks the CELLO, and makes it sounds so so good? I can't come up with just one word or genre to describe Lindsay's music, but that is what makes her so amazing, she defies it all.

And have I mentioned that her voice is absolutely mesmerizing. That's just icing on the cake of this fantastic CD.

You only have to hear her once to completely fall in love with this unbelievably talented new artist.

I saw Lindsay Mac do a live solo show in San Francisco recently then bought the disc. If you like Ani DiFranco, Andrew Bird or Patricia Barber, you'd probably be rewarded to copy me and check her out both live and on cd. At first when I heard her do Bill Withers' "Use Me" I wanted her to slow it down and make it more jazzy the way Patty Barber changes "Ode To Billy Joe", but when I heard the cd version, which makes great use (a rare thing) of scratches and turn-tablism -- pomo, baby -- I took that back. Although classically trained at Interlochen, Dartmouth and Berklee, she stands and strums or picks her cello like its a guitar or mandolin!!!
