Comments:

Cellist and vocalist Lindsay Mac makes a strong debut with this record. She mixes styles and even covers Bill Withers' "Use me" with grace. Her multi-talented approach works wonders. She resembles fellow cellist Jorane in her eclectic approach and Ani Difranco vocally at times. She goes country on one song, funk one and covers many other bases as well. It all hold together well and she can write a good lyric too.
     The breakup song "Turn me away" speaks volumes without raising its voice. "Last Resort" takes in jazz and sounds perfectly relaxed but the words have real bite.
     This is a fascinating and brilliant debut. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)
