Minnesota native Alice Peacock brings her brand of simply warm and comforting songs to each of us from her past of being a folky.
Reminds you of: Sheryl Crow.
“Alabama Boy” – Makes you feel all warm inside.
“Leading With My Heart” – She takes a chance as we seldom do. It pays off.
“Bliss” and “I’ll Start With Me” – Sure to inspire.
“Boy In The Backseat” – Lovely.
“Imagination” – Nice, until she tries to spread the title out over a few beats.
A few tracks fall somewhere in the middle. They aren’t bad, but they don’t hold their own against the first four tracks. Even then a handful of great tracks are better than most can say these days. Alice Peacock hasn’t abandoned folk music, instead she’s taking the basic ingredients and incorporated some long-hard rules of making music accessible to the public. It works and works damn well.
