With a voice that carries far more depth and emotion than should be allowed in one do young, the nineteen year ‘old’ Siobhan Parr has created an album of songs that evoke a sound normally associated with American alt-country blues. Her career was launched on the back of her work with Alabama 3 (for ‘Bulletproof’), and she still makes live guest appearances with them on a regular basis. Siobhan also appears with fellow Londoners Grand Drive, members of whom appear on this album. A regular of the London acoustic scene, between support slots with people as diverse as Jimmy Cliff and Evan Dando, Siobhan’s persistent gigging has paid off.

As I mentioned above, that Siobhan has a gorgeously powerful voice is undeniable; as is the strength of the songwriting on ‘Repeat To Fade’. The soulfulness oozes fourth in every vibrant song to such an extent that they seem instantly familiar. This is a fabulous debut by a clearly talented woman.
