Editorial Reviews

Review

"Over Euro-inflected grooves and airy orchestration, songwriter and artist Robin Frederick lays a suite of brilliantly performed songs. WATER FALLS DOWN spotlights Frederick, a songwriter who has written extensively for film and television, as an artist. She shows an equal facility for neo-hipster jazz grooves and rhythmically atmospheric flow. Aided by Grant Geissman, Roy Campanella III, and others, the sterling performers never overshadow Frederick's wise, connected performances." --Music Connection

"I love it! Musically mystical and evocative with enough body grounding groove to balance it. Lyrically cliche-free with some profound observations (The part of you that knows / hates the part of you that needs.) Effortlessly walks the road between emotion and intellect, the abstract and concrete." --John Braheny, author

"Like Enya, but more grounded... Beautiful, pristine production. Lovely, sensual, expressive voice. The combination of sparse chord comping and dense undergrowth backbeat is really compelling." --ArtistLaunch.com

Product Description

Robin's music is a haunting blend of deep grooves and evocative lyrics. Her vocals combine the intimacy of Norah Jones with the silkiness of Enya and the laid-back phrasing of Dusty Springfield. Hailed as "a miraculous breakthrough into a feeling world" by British music critic Ian MacDonald, the songs on WATER FALLS DOWN explore themes of love and loss with depth and insight. Like Nick Drake, who was a friend and about whom Robin has written extensively, the songs are consoling even while the themes are raw and honest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grown Up Music Therapy May 6, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is my first musical introduction to Robin Frederick.
After many decades of love songs (and other songs) that have used, abused and recylced cliches, Robin's music is a fasinatingly welcomed voyage for this listener, who is also a singer and songwriter.
Before hearing her music I spent time just with the lyrics to "Water Falls Down" and was immediately impacted by the power of the poetry. Then I decided to read the many reviews of her previous CD's and was educated on the interesting use of her rhythm grooves, instrumental choices and also noted the stylistic and vocal comparisons to other well-known artists. This furthered my curiosity when the time came to finally have my devoted listen to this CD. From the first moment I was able to determine for myself that Robin is a gifted artist, intelligent guide and herself, an incredible Muse. She has a beautiful voice with alluring, mystical qualities that gently float and yet she feels very grounding. Her lyrics are like reading a documentary field journal with raw personal experiences that she had witnessed but was powerless to change. Her music will be best appreciated by seasoned lovers, avant garde poets and the self examined. She (gratefully) passes through the ports of call for the sea sick lovers who find comfort in familiar rhyme-time or catchy chorus hooks. Be warned that when you begin this voyage, within the first two tracks of "Water Falls Down" and "The Messenger" that the name of the ship that you have boarded is called REGRET... After that she moves through various other emotional waters until she finally finds some peace by asking for help (from the unseen world) about her pain and regret with the final track, "Angel, Cover Me". I found it a privilege to travel with her through these intense love and loss experiences.
