5.0 out of 5 stars Angel from Knoxville, June 10, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Mirror (Audio CD)
Sorry if it sounds sexist because I don't mean it that way. Jill Andrews' voice has the same effect it did the first time I heard her -- sweet, mellow, expressive, natural honeysuckle. I first saw Jill Andrews when she was in The Everybodyfields with Sam Quinn, in a small club in Madison, WI. Their voices paired exquisitely -- and the band was outstanding. It was one of the few times I've ever found the opening act at a show to be as good as the main act. (We were there to see Tift Merritt. We got a double whammy of great music.) Jill's new album includes some of the twang and flavors from The Everybodyfield's "Nothing Is Okay," but she takes a pop spin on this disc, and it works. Her voice has just a hint of smokiness, and it plays well with the songs she writes. She doesn't let you forget she's from Knoxville -- and that's good. The songs are personal stuff with a sweet edge; melancholy without bitterness. You can hear the echo after each song ends. Jill is an accomplished tunesmith and musician, and she's blessed with a voice to match. I've waited a long time for this album, and it's music... well, enough of all that. Just spin the disc. This one's a definite keeper.
