ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What do you get when you cross a female singer/songwriter possessing mellow, coffee house vibes with a male sound engineer possessing rock and roll expertise? You get the fresh hybrid sound of Girl Friday's sophomore EP, "Songbird!"

Recorded at SoundArts Studios in Houston under the meticulously detailed ears of sound engineer Brian Baker, Girl Friday set out to infuse her softer-side with some electric energy. The angelic and lushly layered vocals deftly dance an edgy pas de deux with the electric guitar throughout each track, often intertwined in a calling-answer effect. Effortlessly commingling and gliding around one other, the carefully panned three part harmonies add to the playfulness of the tunes, and combined with the blues/rock instrumentation leaves the listener with a sweet and spicy musical experience.

Each song takes the listener to a heartfelt place of introspection, self discovery, and hope. The first track, Here I Go, opens the journey with an electric guitar riff that musically says, "...and I MEAN it..." making a nice segue into the dramatic and bluesy intro of track two, Carry Me Away. Flowing right into the third track, Leave the Light On, the listener is treated to the frolicsome feel of the piano leading into the coquettish and coy feminine vocals playing tag with one another to lead into the song's plea.

The final and title track, Songbird, plays out like a miniature epic saga whose protagonist is the mournful, but hopeful songbird. Musically represented by the violin's smooth arpeggios, Songbird takes flight right away after the first vocal phrase with a sheepish flutter of the strings. The timid introduction of the violin into the musical landscape burgeoning into confident acrobatic arpeggios at the song's finale represent the triumph of the human spirit to not only overcome, but to flourish. The melodic storytelling paired with the visual created by the violin leaves the listener feeling as though they have been a passenger on the flight of optimism.

Besting the often seen sophomoric slump of producing a new album, Girl Friday's Songbird not only matches the expert craft of her first release, Light of the Moon, but shows immense artistic growth and a willingness to explore new musical frontiers.
