Sheena Bratt – My Muse and I, Review
Sheena Bratt has become something of a one-woman musical powerhouse over the past couple of years. She’s worked with some of the top names in the local music scene, been featured on the Mojo Records webpages and bagged a support slot with Glen Tilbrook.
You’d be forgiven for not having an exactly clear notion of what you’re about to listen to as her latest record ‘My Muse And I’ begins.
What you’re actually met with is one of the nicest female soloists of all time. Ok this sounds a bit clichéd, but if you give it a listen you’ll know exactly what I mean. It’s like sunshine radiates from the speakers, as her acoustic guitar happily accompanies Sheena’s heartfelt lyrics.
The tracks themselves sound like something you’d expect to hear on an old Alicia’s Attic album.
The first track, which is also the albums namesake, gets the biggest mention. My Muse And I features fresh, witty lyrics and an insight into the whole songwriting process.
Other tracks such as Fire In Your Eyes and Lazy Daze help to display the wealth of talent Sheena possesses, effortlessly slipping into any given genre.
All in all it’s an upbeat, lighthearted album from one of the nicest singers you’ll ever hear.
