Why has this talented young lady not received the recognition that she deserves? Thankfully, the film "American Pie" helped to give her some - as soon as you hear "Sway", you'll recognise it if you've seen the film. But, Bic deserves to have the recognition for her other tracks also.
She has an amazing voice, and while this is easy to tell from listening to "Sway", perhaps the best song on the album for showcasing her voice is the opening track, "Drive". This song is just Bic singing along to a guitar - it is simple yet beautiful. I won't comment on "Sway", so many other people have done so already - it goes without saying what a great song it is.
Another of my personal favourites is "Hey". Again, her voice is the most noticeable thing. But, unlike the previous two songs, this song reaches a great crescendo adding power to the song as a whole.
Give this CD a try, I doubt you'll be disappointed. It may not be the same as the pop music in the charts, but it is nothing less than pure talent - something not always found in chart music these days. Bic Runga is not just a pretty face, she is a proper artist, with bags of talent.
