CD Review:

Siân Elen is a singer/songwriter from the West Coast of Canada. Her emotive and engaging vocal style is what her brand of jazzy/bluesy/folk music requires. Like other phenomenal singer/songwriters such as Joan Armatrading, Tracy Chapman, and Bonnie Raitt, Siân’s lyrical content allows her to showcase the nuances and emotional dimensions of her voice. On this single, a song about that’s really about emotional empowerment (relinquishing it, relishing the relinquishment, regretting it, and ultimately reclaiming it), she is at her finest. Serviceable as a radio single, the track is also ideal for music licensing in a major film.
