Description

N.Z. based Country singer Tami Neilson (originally from Canada) set the bar high on three previous award-winning albums. But this exceptional outing confirms her gifts beyond country, with five songs co-written with Delaney Davidson who also co-produces with Ben Edwards.

This world-class album is a major statement from an artist at the top of her lyrical and vocal game. One listen to the breathtakingly sad break-up ballad You Lie – the title ambiguous, the music given ringing and weeping steel guitar by Red McKelvie – and the whole hurtful film unravels before your misty eyes.

Elsewhere she’s a convincing Peggy Lee torch singer on the sultry nightclub blues of Walk Back to Your Arms, and for the glorious ballad Cry Over You she locates herself between Patsy Cline and Roy Orbison. All these originals sound like freshly coined classics.

Co-writer Davidson plays Lee Hazlewood/Johnny Cash to her sweetness on the brooding, train-clack rhythm and string-coloured Running to You, and their Whiskey and Kisses is an adult Willie’n’Emmylou tear-stained barroom dialogue which would enhance the career of any Nashville or Austin singer and songwriter. Includes a great duet with MARLON WILLIAMS.  A little less upbeat rockabilly than the more recent ‘CHICKA BOOM!’ more a classic country album…   It’s extraordinary.
