Product Description

Everything I’ve Got in My Pocket is the debut album from Hollywood actress Minnie Driver. Gentle singing and folksy accompaniment makes this album very easy to listen to. Features "Invisible Girl", "Deeper Water" and "Yellow Heart".

Amazon.co.uk

Everything I've Got in My Pocket is the debut album from Minnie Driver and it comes as a pleasant surprise. Ms Driver is, of course, best known for her acting career, but it's little known that she actually started out in singing. Her voice is sweet on the ear - she sounds a bit like a Country-tinged Dido with a bit of Sheryl Crowe thrown in – and is more than capable of doing the songs justice. The album sounds like it could be on the soundtrack of an American drama about angst-ridden twenty-somethings, and that's not a bad thing, as it comes in a comfortingly mellow and lyrical package. Minnie worked with members of the Wallflowers and Pete Yorn in the studio, and it shows in the polished result. Blending folk, country and pop influences, Everything I've Got in My Pocket gives the term 'easy listening' a good name. It is wonderfully accessible and has a dreamy quality that lingers long after the album has finished. If Minnie has more material like this in her pocket then Hollywood might just be put on hold for a while yet. --Amy Anderson

What a super album, better than I expected and not the typical "actress to music" stuff that we`ve been forced to listen to in the past. Beautiful, haunting melodies had me hooked on the first play, the only disappointment being "Hungry Heart" which was a Bruce Springsteen cover. Good voice, good sound, well done Minnie!

key tracks..
everything i got in my pocket
ruby adeline
invisible girl
deeper water

as soon as i heard the first single, and albums title track...i knew i would like this album. however i was wrong...i LOVE this album. we all know minnie the actress, but this album was such a pleasant surprise - i cant stop playing it.

minnie's voice is clear and strong throughout this 11 track masterpiece. second single 'invisible girl' is a catchy radio friendly pop song that you cannot resist, while 'ruby adeline' closes the album making you want more. the album is a fairly laid back affair, best played on balmy summer nights with a glass of wine. minnie writes most of the songs on her own, as well as playing instruments making you realise this is an album built on raw talent.

the songs are all personal, sometimes quirky, but all are brimming with minnie's heart and soul making this album irressistable. the only down side is that its an album so good...she may never be able to better it!!

Having been blown away by the understated debut single from this album, the title track, "Everything I've Got In My Pocket," I was eagerly anticipating this debut album, and it does not disappoint.
11 tracks of smokey gorgeousness, Minnie's vocals gently blend against an adult-contemporary MOR country/folk/jazz backing, relaxing the listener with each listen. Having written 10 of the 11 tracks on this CD, the lyrics are personal to Minnie, whilst the impeccable production and instrumentation is equally as entrancing. Also an actress, Minnie's singing/songwriting began long before she starred in any film, but her musical aspirations were temporarily shelved because of her acting success.
"Wire," a down-tempo ballad, is a highlight and should be a single, whilst "Deeper Water" follows this trend. The catchy chorus of "Down" is an equal highlight, and is one of the songs that Minnie has been performing in promotion for this record.
The soft-rock "Invisible Girl," which could easily have been written for artists such as Natalie Imbruglia or Dido, is one of my favourite tracks on the album, and is arguably a more radio-friendly single than the album's title track. "Fast As You Can" is a ballad, reminiscent of Eva Cassidy, which would be a certainty on the BBC Radio 2 playlist. "So Well" also flirts with a more mid-tempo, soft rock sound, whilst "Ruby Adeline" is acoustic, showcasing Minnie's vocals to their fullest.
Another highlight of the album is her cover of Bruce Springsteen's "Hungry Heart," the only track Minnie did not write on the record. The gorgeous piano melody and jazz drums fit well with the rest of the album.
Whilst it would obviously help if you are a fan of MOR music (it has it's critics for being unadventurous, etc.), I thoroughly enjoy this album.

Minnie Driver was trained to be a singer before she became an actress; one wonders why it took so long for her to reverse the role because she is a truly talented songwriter-singer. What she's produced is a very personal and intimate album of fairy-tale like laid-back jazzy rock country folky mellow and lyrical songs/ballads. It is extremely melodic, sweet and gorgeous for background music. Coasting music for dreamers, poets and lovers in the vein of Dido and Norah Jones.
Shame she doesn't do more live performances but that may come when she has gained more confidence to produce further music to firmly establish her as a distinguished musician/singer.

I had no idea what to expect from this - 'oh no, not another actress trying to be a pop star' was my initial reaction, but it's so far removed from anything like that. This is genuinely good and an authentic attempt to make a serious adult contemporary pop/rock album. It's got a rather ethereal quality, which has a lot to do with Minnie's lovely, dreamy, velvety voice. In fact I like her voice so much, I could run out of superlatives to describe it. Some of the songs are better than others though, but particularly good are the singles 'Everything I've Got In My Pocket' and 'Invisible Girl, and the cover of Springsteen's 'Hungry Heart' is an excellent interpretation. It's worth mentioning that not only does Minnie come across as a fine singer, she also has the potential to be a fine songwriter too - most of the tracks on this album are self-penned. And best of all, she's British. I have to say I love this album.

I love music, but find it such an intensely personal thing that I find it tough to explain why I like the stuff I like, and consequently I tend to stick to advising against stuff I don't like.
In the case of this CD, though, I will make an exception.
Minnie Driver has clearly followed her heart with this recording, rather than the guidance of some stylist or agent. This is proper grown-up music, not some Hollywood cash-in, and is brilliantly done. The fact that her backing band are a proper band, with proper band chemistry, rather than bunch of session musicians, makes all the difference.
If asked to pigeonhole the music, I would say it is alt-country without the world-weariness, and it should appeal to anyone who includes Cowboy Junkies and Springsteen among their musical faves.
A quick mention ought to be made, I suppose, of Minnie Driver's voice. Not only can she sing, but her voice has an individuality and character that draws you in and hangs around in the back of your mind for days.
Only time will tell if this is a one-off to fulfil a lifelong ambition, or a permanent addition to Minnie Driver's portfolio, but on this example, I'd say that, if she wants to, she could fairly safely think about giving up the day job.
