Democracy is the first we've heard
2007—uvulittle Records—uvu 304
Stephanie Rearick—vocals, piano, trumpet
Stephanie Rearick, and Stephanie Rearick with Edward Reardon, Jon Hain
A most odd record and I mean that positively. Rearick plays individual music, and she sounds mostly like herself. One minute she hammers at the piano and the next she delicately plays it. She gives Leonard Cohen's "Democracy" a dark reading and also covers The Beatles originally. She's clearly an artist with her own vision. She has a great voice and her piano skills are impressive. This album deals with democracy and the lack thereof wonderfully. (email@example.com)

Stephanie Rearick—vocals, keyboards
Christ Wagoner—cello (8)
Stephanie Rearick returns and her original view of the world is intact. As before she mixes covers with her own songs to great effect. "Up the wall" looks at economics and is wonderfully accomplished. "Lithe and Blithe" is a complex song, rendered lightly and with confidence. "Windmills of your mind", once sung by Dusty Springfield gets an individual reading, as does "Toy Boat" by Yoko Ono. Rearick's made another great album. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
