I have to admit I didn't think I was going to like this when I first got it, I normally don't listen to what I'd call ADULT EASY LISTENING and that's what I thought this CD was going to be...
I was pleasently surprised, and it couldn't have came at a better time!
With the loss of a close friend I wasn't feeling the most upbeat and was headed to work when I found this disc in my mailbox. I instantly put it in and was swept away to a calm warm place. It made me feel good inside. It wasn't depressing or moody it was cool and gentle and heartfelt.
You can tell that KIT and TANYA both are amazing song writers, for this record is most definately a songwriters record. Deep lyrics are spun together alongside amazing compositions. Banjos, Mandolin's, Beautiful Acoustic guitar and stunning vocals come together seemlessly.
This is beautiful!
One of my favorite tracks is definately
THE SPACE IN ME
I can close my eyes and lay back and just chill... and smile to myself. The two voices blend so wonderfully together and compliment one another perfectly.
I would compare Kit's voice to a smoother ROB THOMAS and TANYA has a very pure and warm voice not heard since possibly Allison Krauss but completely different at the same time.
I think the slower songs such as FLYING TO YOU really grab me, this one lets TANYA shine, the guitar is so perfect and her voice.. honestly I could listen to the song without music and just listen to her and be perfectly satisfied. DO NOT COMPARE HER TO ANY OTHER GIMICK FEMALE SINGER she is true.
One thing truely amazes me about this record is that KIT plays almost every instrument. Yet it sounds so perfect, you'd think an entire band was backing these two.
I know I normally go through each and every track and review each one, but this time I don't think it's neccessary. If you like one track you will like them all. SO PLEASE I BEG YOU support these two.. they are headed somewhere and I hope to meet them along the way!
