Quote: "Everyday music that can accompany nearly any mood, this CD would be good for kicking back to relax for a bit or even for some listening in the car."

This is moving stuff that knows how to toe the line between too much and just right. Peimer's voice delivers the emotion she no doubt intended to relay when she wrote the lyrics. Track 2, "Set To Fly," is a perfect example of this. Lovely. Both the faster and slower tracks on the CD are well done, but it is the softer, silkier ones that really showcase this singer's skill for relating to the listener. Good stuff.
The musical arrangements are a bit atypical, but not in a distracting way, rather catching one's interest. That combined with the vocals makes for a very thick, layered sound that resonates. Don't miss Peimer's cover of "Ring of Fire," a peppy tribute to both Johnny and June done in such a way that one feels like dancing to it.
Peimer's voice is one that connects. It sounds throaty without the rasp, which makes it very soothing. Everyday music that can accompany nearly any mood, this CD would be good for kicking back to relax for a bit or even for some listening in the car. While some artists deliver music that is palatable to only a select group, this is a CD that has a wide appeal.
