Edie Carey is gifted with one of those voices that could sound great singing anything. So the mystery and beauty on her second studio full-length is how she maintains an intimate, delicate approach on her elegant, if low-key singer/songwriter folk-pop. Economic instrumentation forces all your attention toward the gentle storytelling, rich with humanity and insight. In “Compromise (Be a Poet About It)” she finds strength in meeting halfway, while on “If I Start to Cry” she admits she “may not stop.” Vulnerable and pleasing, Carey draws us into her world, where we find we have a lot in common.
