anyone could see why the music industry is currently stagnant when everything on the radio sounds about the same. one could even go so far as to say that it's rather saddening when there are so many talented artists out there making great music who may never be acknowledged by either mtv nor your local radio stations. after listenint to artists like ani difranco & dar williams for years, i grew to dislike the radio offerings more & more. jonatha brooke is another example of underrated independent brilliance. from the opening track, she kicks off a ear grabbing song entitled linger. ok, great track. good voice. hold on! it just gets better & better. by the time you arrive at the last track of steady pull, you are simply hitting the repeat button on your cd player to relive the experience again. while ms. brooke could easily be classified as a folk artist, her music toys with pop rock & even a hint of reggae or torch music. this album could easily have garnered some crossover appeal radiowise if only someone knew about it. buy one for yourself or someone you love. in fact, buy two!!!
I would recommend this to a friend
