Liz Janes & Create(!) join forces to render a beautiful collection of public domain songs, which will be available on CD soon. Minimalist guitars, ambient drones, and nuanced drum-brushes accompany Liz’s hushed contra alto vocal stylings. The recording relinquishes all the bells and whistles from Liz’s previous recordings, augmenting instead the understated elements of Negro spirituals, love ballads, and traditional folk songs we know so well. Pull up the blankets and listen carefully. There is someone singing in your ear.
