ONE EYE ON THE HIGHWAY
There’s a couple of great little toe-tappers, demonstrating Elizabeth’s ease and ability to flit between several musical styles, and this comes to little surprise considering her background in musical theatre — Can You Dance, will undoubtedly have you up on your feet and clapping your hands in time with its infectious rhythm and Can I Quit My Day Job Yet? will leave you humming its memorable chorus for quite some time. Did I Touch You is a real must-listen gem, with infectious lyrics, swooping violin flourishes (John Calverley) and a marvellous melody, whilst poetic love song Whatever We Do will stay with you for hours, both, potential country hitters.
An unplugged version of an earlier song That’s What Momma Always Said closes the album beautifully, consisting merely of just vocal, guitar and poignant thread. A stunning debut from an inspiringly talented singer-songwriter and gifted performer, that undoubtedly merits some thorough listening, if you like good music beautifully written and superbly sung. There’s plenty more to come.
