Some days I like to paint in total silence, while other days I crave music. The choice has nothing to do with the kind of work I'm creating; it's just that some days are music days. One of my favourite female vocalists is Amelia Curran who currently lives in Nova Scotia. A friend gave me her last CD War Brides and I was smitten from the first note. Reviewers had a similar response.
"Amelia Curran’s latest CD, War Brides, is one of those intimate gems of an album that you have to discover for yourself. There isn’t a big publicity machine forcing it down your throat, and it’s an album you have to seek to find. One thing that is very clear upon listening to it is that you realize that Curran, a St. John’s native now based in Nova Scotia, creates music that is instantly satisfying, and in a world full of folk singers, Curran’s music is a cut above.”
