I don't believe that I have ever purchased an album where I fell in love with almost every cut after just one listening. That is until now. Siobhan, through her voice and use of lyrics, has transported me back in time to a place where I have never been. Celtic music has always appealed to me but I wasn't hooked on it until I heard Siobhan newest album. Listening to this album I feel as if Siobhan, taking harp in hand, is leading me down a path to those special places she holds dear in her heart. If you would like to take this journey with her, I highly recommend that you get this album, grab a cool drink, find any easy chair put the album on and get prepared for the trip of your lifetime. You won't be disappointed. (You might want to pack a light jacket).

Siobhan Owen released her first album, Purely Celtic, in 2008 at the age of fourteen. As the title suggests, Owen had a keen interest in Celtic music and it has run through all of her albums since then. Storybook Journey is her fourth album; conceived, recorded and released at the turn of adulthood. Now eighteen, Owen has not abandoned her passion for Celtic music, but she has broadened her repertoire by integrating her first love with classical crossover, marrying the two genres more cohesively and intimately than any artist has ever done before.

Based on the concept of taking the listener on a narrative journey, each song tells a tale of the traditional kind encompassing "love, war, loss, prayers and dreams". The track list consists of traditional songs of Celtic origin (many unusual) but also holds some surprises in a Japanese version of 'Walking in the Air' (Sora Wo Aruku) and a cover of Secret Garden's 'Prayer'. Highlights include the highly emotive 'Nearer My God To Thee' (recorded in respect of the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic), the uplifting 'Caledonia' and the quirky 'Fields of St Etienne'. Highlights aside, all the songs have something to offer, mainly due to the pure and ever-growing versatility of Owen's vocals.

The album's opener, 'Cariad', wastes no time in introducing Owen's clarity and precision. She has always given a Celtic flavour in her vocal delivery, but this time round, she has mixed it with a more classical technique, calling Westenra to mind. Combining the two, she has created her own vocal style, further setting her apart from her contemporaries and freshening up her material.

As well as her vocals, Owen has also taken a slight departure from the arrangements of her previous albums.

A CD full of great songs all performed to perfection by Siobhan, consisting of a fine mixture of classic, folk and celtic songs and ballads. There are so many gems it is difficult to pick a favourite, so I mention a few. The Rose is a great song in itself and Siobhans' beautiful presentation matches the greatness of the song. Siobhan performs Walking In The Air twice on the album, initially the classic version in English and later in the album in Japanese, a delightful combination. Bring Him Home is absolutely gorgeous, with her sweet, pure voice and charming harp playing it has to be one of the album highlights. Nearer My God To Thee is is amazing, the best version I have heard in this year of remembering the Titanic. Siobhans' voice sounds more powerful than we get used to, and produces a moving version of this hymn. Caledonia is one of my favourite folk songs anyway, and Siobhans' version is just beautiful. Prayer, Calon Lan, Dream A Dream, Scarborough Fair, Cariad, and more, all wonderful songs on this wonderful album.

I just purchased Siobhan Owen's incredible CD.

Her voice simply put is purely "MAGICAL". That together with the harp, which she also plays is nothing less than incredible.

This album takes you on a journey.

Not only is her voice incredible, so is the music. The recording itself also sounds absolutely amazing. The vocals are so crisp and clean, you'd be amazed.

This album is a total masterpiece.

Do yourself a favor and check out this work of art.

You may find it difficult to walk away from once you turn it on.

I am totally amazed by her voice and highly recommend the purchase.

You'll be glad you did as it will give you hours and hours of listening enjoyment.

I've had this album for 3 days at this point, and I'm still constantly listening to this incredible piece of work. I'm finding it difficult to choose a favorite as each song becomes a favorite as I listen. Very few albums have had this effect on me. Usually, on a good or well liked album, there are your favorites and others that seem to be just fillers. Not so on this album. Each and every song are immediately catchy and beautifully sung.

I can't say enough incredible things about this masterpiece.

Do yourself a favor and purchase this album. It will give you hours and hours of listening enjoyment. Not only the vocals either. The strings and flutes and of course, Siobhan's harp are sure to take you on a "Journey"

Even above and beyond Siobhan's crystalline voice and lilting harp, this album is one of those remarkable rarities that has not one single disappointing track. From beginning to end, you are led through an landscape of sound which captures your imagination, and perhaps even your heart.

This record was my introduction to Siobhan Owen, and I'm now saving my pennies to purchase her previous CDs, (Lilium), (Celestial Echoes) and (Purely Celtic). If you are an Classical Crossover or Celtic music fan, I can't fathom you would be anything less than completely charmed!
