Hear and Now
This lovingly crafted CD is a triumph for local vocalist Kimball. It showcases her sweet voice in ways that are impressive yet never showy, with styles that are wistful and joyous without resorting to pleading or gimmicks. The songs are a meditative lot, and they shimmer with tasteful instrumentation: lilting, plaintive piano, pensive horn breaks, expertly picked guitar. Plus theres one killer, the devastatingly pretty Dont Take Your Love Away, which manages the neat trick of being perfect for barroom singalongs as well as sobbing in the dark.Download: Dont Take Your Love Away.
