Lady of the Reach
Lily is a sweet voiced young lady with the last name Parrot. John Parrot has written most of the songs and plays guitar and harmonica. The resulting album is dominated by Lily's wonderful singing and a calm mood ensues.
"Love is" is a hushed song that brings a lazy Sunday feeling. Lily sings beautifully as the melody unfolds. Carlos Jobim's "Triste" gets a lovely, sad reading. "Echos" is another great little song, Lily sounding as angelic as Heather Nova can. The title song is stunningly evocative, an epic that features the sound of water being used alongside John Parrot's guitar. Lady of the Reach is a stunning album.
