5.0 out of 5 stars Superb melancholic debut…, 12 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Dog Leap Stairs (Audio CD)
When I bought the album after this “Little black numbers” I could help but think to myself does this singer-songwriter have any more albums and what are they like?
So with that in mind I tracked this album down, and that was in the year 2000, and low and behold I find it’s been re-released after the success of other female singer-songwriters of recent times.
This collection of 10 tracks that was her debut album, was released in 1999 on her own “CAW” label is just over 32 minutes long and is of the same low-fi approach of the preceding album.
Ms. Williams has even done the sleeve artwork herself as well as played guitar, and on some of the tracks co-produced and done the arrangement of the track.
On the song “Something like that” K.W. has even recorded the song as well as everything else on that track from vocals to the engineering.
I think this D.I.Y. style of recording by her is matter of necessity to save money, as this first recording she financed herself.

You will find that the lyrics to songs sound very personal and I think they relate to the deeply felt feeling of “Ms Williams”.
This recording is a great snapshot of a talented artist who couldn’t get a break from a major label but believed in her talent herself and this is the fruits of her first release I am glad to stay are available again for people to enjoy.
If you bought and enjoyed her first album don’t miss out the opportunity to buy this collection as its intense raw emotion that we all feel some times and K.W. conveys them so eloquently on this album of vignettes.
