Comments:

Karney's debut is soft-focused but has some grounding in very real life concerns. Her voice is amazingly expressive and her songs multi-faceted. "Hold on" is an up-tempo song with a hopeful lyric that still doesn't pull any punches. "Wild Green" is a rhythmic song with a gorgeous melody and a eco-conscious message. "Aurora" is a beautiful song with an edgy lyric that Karney handles very well. It's a highly promising debut by a gifted artist. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)
