As I listened to the latest music work from music Kristin Rebecca and her album called Tales, Trails, Truths. The first song is called “Wackos & Wierdos” the song shares an element of folk and the song seems to be making a statement of what Kristin wants to express in a world we share it with Wackos & Wierdos. The next song is called “Can I Be Honest” and Kristin has a sound that brings in her vocals that have an voice from the past that can’t put a pulse on but quite good. The next song is called “In Your Eyes” the element of an Irish comes into play, Kristin’s voice shares an element and her guitar picking on the song shares that with others that have this genre in their music. “Let Him Go” Kristin really has an ability to project her vocals that are strong and maintain that Irish folkish kind of sound within them. The musicality is really enjoyable throughout, and times it seems a magical feel to it. I almost forget that Kristin is playing the Carmac Lever Harp, and her vocals accompany this very well as she has that voice of true Irish inflected music. Kristin has a sound that I can’t compare to any one music artist, but as the album continues I can hear that Kristin has that almost Celtic feel to the song called “Gone” and the rest of the assortment on this album. Her vocals are clear & precise. The music felt like a continuing story throughout the album. The next song called “Blame It On the Moon” Kristin has the musicality piece down to a science, her music is moving and has a element of realism to it. Kristin and her vocal range have a feel of validity and took me on a musical journey to a time where kings and queens ruled the land. “Tears From The Sky” the emotional value that Kristin has is a sound that is almost ancient and reminds me at times where castles and horsemen ruled the world. “Ready For The Storm” Kristin once again has that truly Celtic and traditional music. She shares the musical table with an almost “Americana” in style despite this on the songs “Sail Away” and “Night In Santa Monica” and “Reach for The Sky” Kristin keeps that sound of true Irish Celtic feel and pulse on full speed throughout. The song called “Let’s Dance” picks up the pace a little and shares a hint of Jazz with the Hamond B 3 brought in and adds a little fusional sound to the song and coupled with Kristin’s vocals it comes to life. “Horseshoe” the song has a sound of mystique that actually have a steel guitar interwoven through them and adds appeal and a sense of different and added in Kritin and her vocals make it a solid arrangement. “Victory” the song actually takes on a different twist to it and has an electric feel to it, where as the album before this song seemed to be so traditional sounding and with the electric feel to this song just popped out there. “One Chance” has that same kind of feel to it with the electric sound and Kristin shows her musical diversity on these two songs where she delivers the element of Americana feel to these songs “One Chance” & Heartbeat of Life” her vocals on every song has true evidence of who Kristin Rebecca is as a singer and songwriter, and throughout this wonderful and amazing album I heard vocals that reach the pinnacle of traditional Celtic and bring in the Americana style also. All in all the album is splendid and superb and just goes to prove that there is so much music out there not being heard, and hopefully when you hear this album you’ll feel the same way I do. I thank Kristin for her tremendous gift of music and allowing me to share the experience of her musical talents and am would love to experience her in a live show and feel the same experience and feelings I have throughout this splendid album.
