Her original songs have a personal quality to them. “Karine” is the poignant story of the death of a patient. The bright lyrics cannot cover up the ultimate tragedy of sudden loss. The reason is never explained, which makes the story all the sadder.
Many of her compositions are thoughtful love songs that have elements of loss that just about everyone has experienced at some time in their lives. “After All” takes a different path as it explores passion that survives the passage of time.
Pretty House is not upbeat but it is thoughtful and interesting, resonating in the places of the heart. It is a good listen with a warm fire and your favorite beverage.
