Original songs propel Carrie Wicks’s fourth recording for OA2 Records. Four are co-written with co-producer Nick Allison, and others with Ken Nottingham, who, along with Wicks, is a member of the Bushwick Book Club, where literature inspires compositions that are performed at unique musical literary events. Several of these songs are presented here with Carrie’s shimmering quartet meshing beautifully with her intimate, burnished tone and conversational delivery. “Some Other Spring,” a harmonically intriguing ballad recorded by Billie Holiday in 1939, and “Meet Me at No Special Place” from Nat King Cole’s songbook are also included. “What a surprise her voice is: individualistic and alluring at the same time.” – WWOZ, NEW ORLEANS
