Singer/songwriter Lynn Miles has been big (actually HUGE) in Canada with seven or eight albums under her belt and a JUNO (their Grammy) Award. But she was new to me here in the US until 2011 when I got her "Fall From Beauty" CD. When this CD arrived, I popped it in my player and, from the first track - "Something Beautiful" - I found myself tapping my foot and dancing around the room. The rest of the album didn't let me down either and I've been a huge fan since then.
This new album is a fine one too, just a bit different in style. Two of the songs (the opener "More" and "Can't Stop My Heart From Breaking") have Miles singing with a countrified yodel. At least for me, they sounded too similar in style. "My Road", an autobiographical tale was the winner track for me this time, with its great chorus. ""Party Too Long" is another autobiographical song.
There are 11 songs on the album, all penned by Miles. Her producer, Ian Lefeuvre, not only produced the disc but also plays an amazing range of instruments on it. (Electric and acoustic guitars, keyboards, banjo, percussion, mandolin, zither and more!). Miles herself plays both kinds of guitars as well as piano, pump organ and percussion. These two provide all the music.
I'm glad I found Miles and will continue to follow her career. She definitely has the talent and a great partner in Lefeuvre.
