Product Description

Product Description

There is nothing overblown about Songbirds - their take me as
you find me attitude is reflected throughout their debut album `Wake Up
Call'. From the delightfully stripped down arrangements of acoustic guitar,
piano and softly brushed drums, to the simplicity of the gorgeous three
part harmonies.

Amazon.co.uk

There are three "songbirds" all together--Lynette from Liverpool, Flick from Devon and Amy from Surrey. Their debut single "The Weatherman (No Wonder I Feel Blue)" garnered a lot of airplay and media attention, which the three young ladies have now capitalised on with this full-length. Wake Up Call continues the threesome's forays into acoustic pop with a country twist. Inspired by veteran singers such as Joni Mitchell, Eva Cassidy and The Dixie Chicks, the songs here are pared down and simple, built from acoustic guitar strums, riffled piano harmonies and softly brushed drums. The real key to the songs though are the girl's voices; more specifically their three-part harmonies. Tracks like "Lazy Sunday Morning" and "Butterflies and Rainbows" are reminiscent of 60s-era ballads, while "Take Me As You Find Me" and "Show Me A Sign" further underline the trio's honeyed vocal talents and penchant for memorable pop hooks. It's not a complicated album, and some may lament the lack of innovation. But those who enjoy well-written country pop songs polished to perfection will find much to like here. --Danny McKenna

Their voices are very harmonious and their arrangements are perfectly simple. Their voices and songs remind me of Wilson Phillips, the Bangles and a little bit like B*Witched. Some of their songs have a country style to them and some may say that their songs sound dated. I think regardless of this, their voices are fantastic and a joy to listen to. 5 Stars from me.

Wake Up Call is, by far the best known track on this album having not long been a top 5 hit single. But, it is not truly reflective of the rest of the album. They are beaitiful singers with soft warm voices that fit their group name. This is a lovely relaxed album and well worth a listen. My only worry is that they do sound too laid back and have leaned more towards country and this I feel could sideline them into a genre that will not see them thrive as I believe that they should. But hey! what the hell do I know go on give your ears a treat and buy this you will not regret it.

Interestingly theres a DVD called WAKE UP CALL:Saving the Songbirds.
Must prove something-maybe this sort of thing is going to save the idea of what used to be pop music!
This CD can only be obtained now from HMV's website but that's not the only odd thing here.Charity shops are full of Atomic Kittens,Girls Aloud,Spice Girls yet this one is never seen.
With a beautiful sleeve which shows a trio of petticoat girls this is their only CD and is bound to be a future collectors item as it slots in comportably with 60s country music

Bought a used copy based on the reviews here. My instant thought was that you could put Wilson Phillips on the title and few would know it wasn't. The harmonies and style are practically WP clones. On the plus side, it's well produced and I'm sure it will sound great on my hifi, but, to date, it's only been through the car system. My major gripe is the banal day/say/way type rhyming. Simplistic lyrics, beautifully sung make for difficult listening and I was almost expecting the next track to be about lollipops and rainbows. If you like songs to sound like fluffy kittens you may enjoy this. If there are such things as ChickLit and ChickFliks, then this is certainly ChickLyrics. A CD for a single girl to play loudly while warming up a M&S meal-for-one in a lonely flat. It may grow on me, but I have my doubts. My summary: Beautiful voices, somewhat wasted.

This debut CD is fantastic. It is very easy listening and all 3 girls have lovely voices that, while different, blend together beautifully. I just can't stop listening to it - best CD I've bought for ages. Try it and you won't be disappointed.

Easy Listening, all tracks are enjoyable to listen to. The voices of these girls are amazing. Never heard of them before unitl I heard their CD playing in the back ground whilst having a manicure...then just had to buy it.
