Amy Fradon: Passion Angel
Amy Fradon is a natural, down-home folksinger who doesn't just sing
her heart out. She puts in the very essence of her entire being, with a
beautiful, larger than life voice. She lifts you straight up into a higher
plane where a mere song can become a truly moving, spiritual
experience. This album, her first solo effort after a long
duet-partnership, and also her debut as a producer, is a testament to her
wonderful songwriting and a joyous fanfare of vocal harmonies. She is
surrounded by some of the best musicians around, all great friends, for
an intimate, musical celebration. ... This record is filled with real gems, outstanding
songs that speak right to the heart.
