Hunter Hayes - I Want Crazy | Album: I Want Crazy (UK Compilation album) Amazon UK - UK iTunes
“I’ll Be Back” - “when it builds in the chorus and the extra vocals came in I thought it was really rather lovely” - - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire
Jemima is the eldest of 4 daughters in a Irish family of 6; they are an extremely musical family and have been singing and playing together for years. They are known as 'The Farey Family' and are slowly becoming more recognized within the area, playing original compositions and traditional folk, gospel and country songs.
UK based songwriter and musician Gem Andrews crafts beautiful original songs that cut to the quick and speak to the heart. Her work is firmly rooted in her beloved Alt. Country and Americana traditions, with influences from Kitty Wells to K.D Lang.
Gem was born in the Liverpool suburb of Woolton, Merseyside. A much travelled musician she has taken her music around the UK, Canada and across numerous European countries.
Daintees’ Martin Stephenson, the now Berlin based Ms. Andrews takes listeners on a journey of discovery, the map, the guide and the plan is all of Ms. Andrews own making and the desire to follow with complete trust in her well marked footsteps, to be led with abandon, is to give yourself over to one human being for a short while....With tracks such as Your Father’s Diary, Heart Like A Wheel, Crimson Tide and the album title track Vancouver all conspiring with innocent regard for the listener’s appreciation, Vancouver is a shining example of what it means to appreciate the journey. It does not have to be bristling with permanent sunshine, the hospitality doesn’t always require the benefit of being cordial, what it should be is honest and fulfilling. Vancouver is just that, a peek into the world of situations that frame what it is to be alive. Liverpool Sound And Vision
The album opens with a delicate piece of folk-flavoured music called "Calling". Andrews sings about an idyllic childhood soundtracked by Neil Young, Townes Van Zandt, and the like. But, the pain in her voice lets you know that there’s not going to be a happy ending. The theme of family weaves and threads its way through several songs with "Mother Dear" being especially brittle and beautiful at the same time -- a daughter looks on as an old and sick woman lies "silent and sleeping / towards her grave". It's sung over a jaunty tune that sounds slightly eerie and is sure to tug on even the most calloused heartstrings....Thirty minutes after we hear the first notes, we hear the final track, "Vancouver", which is another broken-hearted love song, but one with more than a little bit of hope attached and the perfect way to end an outstanding album. - No Depression
