Performing Songwriter Magazine features Brand
Since it's been awhile since my last newsletter, I wanted to make sure
I told you some great news that happened over the past few months. We
were thrilled to learn that Performing Songwriter Magazine
(circ.70,000 / readership 130,000) selected
Brand New Day as a "Top 12 DIY" Independent Music Release
for their December 2005 issue. This is a pretty big deal since Performing
Songwriter Magazine is a widely read and respected industry publication.
Their reviewer writes:
"The great thing about self-produced records is that
artists can make music in whatever style they choose, without an A&R
exec breathing down their necks trying to categorize and pigeonhole. This
freedom is joyfully evident on Emily Lord's latest release. The record
orbits light pop, but passes effortlessly through gospel, blues, country
and adult contemporary. Lord delivers her strong melodic hooks with a
relaxed strength that belies the staggering ranges of many of the tunes.
Messages are positive without being saccharine. "One
Day at a Time" sings of the joys of taking things easy while background
"na-na-na's" bounce happily along. "The Way" explores
the artist's perennial question: "What I fear most is that I've lost
my way / that the gift that I've been given may be slipping away."
One listen and you'll be ready to reassure her that she's serving her
gifts just fine." -Mare Wakefield, Performing Songwriter Magazine
Take care & thanks so much for your ongoing support.
All the best,
