I think it's safe to say that anyone who got The Last Kiss soundtrack became enamored with the song "Paperweight" that Fisk did with Josh Radin. That song created such a rich feeling of the joy of being with someone. I was left wondering where I could get more from this young woman I only knew as the girlfriend character in the movie Orange County.
It has been a long wait, and after reading about the issues with a major label, she's out doing it solo. The album is classified as folk, but I think of it more like pop for grown ups. She writes lyrics that I suspect anyone can identify with, but they resonate loudly with me, and I'm nine years older than her.
The style is diverse enough to take you up and down, and keep you engaged. "Fall Apart Today" will undoubtedly strike a chord with "Paperweight" fans (this song is even better). The ironically titled "Miss You" is like a kick in the goodies that sounds like something Sheryl Crow, Sara Bareilles and KT Tunstall got together and wrote for a common exboyfriend. "Sunshine" feels almost a little country and has this wonderful guitar bridge in the middle.
Her story is hard to ignore, and after seeing her play tonight in Cleveland, she deserves whatever success she gets. She loves to engage the fans, and sells her CD's herself. You can't help but wish the best for her.
