emma hill – clumsy seduction
The artist Emma Hill was formerly known as: Emma Hill and Her Gentlemen Callers. Not sure what happened to all Ms. Hill’s suitors, but shorter names always work better for me. Hey, maybe they will materialize on the next release. This new release is sprawling in size at 15 tracks and the odd thing is the further in you get the better it sounds. Track 6 ‘We Laughed All Night’ was going to be my favorite until track 11 “Doctor’ brightened my mind. The ride continues very nicely through the last song ‘Highway 101’. And I do mean ride, as I do my main reviewing of every disc on my journey to and fro my place of work. The folk acoustic sound of Emma Hill is refreshing and honest in its confessional tone. While the production could have been stronger, here is hoping with more support and greater sales and fan base, her next release will be a stunner. Please watch the video for a generous taste of what her next release will be like.
