"Hit & Run" CD
Genre: singer / songwriter,
Jan 24 2009
Imagine Alanis Morrisette with a heavier folk
influence and some
occasional cello, fiddle, and even accordion. Then
you've pretty much figured out Emma Cook,
singer/songwriter who has delivered a mature folk-rock
record with Hit & Run.
This is not the most groundbreaking release to come out in the past
year, but it is professionally written and well
vocals are consistently solid, and the instrumentation provides a
pleasant coffee shop vibe. For this record she pulls off a
number of upbeat
numbers ("This Boy," "Wound Up") as well as slower ballads ("Song You
Asked Me Not To Write," "Already Gone").
Album highlight "Coffee Shop Girl" is infectiously spirited.
Expect to hear
several tracks from this record on adult alternative stations
have the necessary polish to fit right in.
