On a Planet Where It Rains

by Sherry Lawson

Acoustic-pop with a social conscience. This is the music of the voices in your head that say,"That's not right!!". If you love Speed-punk you'll HATE this!

Impressive vocal range and lyrical skills....melodies that leave you singing the
Sherry Lawson captures the spirit of folk's golden age on this charming and melodic debut. She seizes this forum for herself, displaying impressive vocal range and lyrical skills. On the album's most political song, Lawson addresses a "Union Man" singing,"now you're rich and its true for you/Guilty of the things they used to do." However, most of the themes on "Planet" are either personal, dealing with lost romance and fallen friends, or spiritual as on the album-ending medley "The Law of One/Your Mouth is a Prayer." Musically, Lawson can rock out Sheryl Crow style, as she does with help from Producer/guitarist Steve Phillips on "You get what you settle for" but she can also cop a sultry, jazzy coo, add a little twang to a country hoedown, or mute herself to a hesitant near-whisper on her softer material. Yet what really sets her apart is her ear for melody - many singer/songwriters have enough talent to wow the coffeehouse crowd, but Lawson has the hooks to leave them singing her tunes later.

Great voice!! Love the lyrics also. I think this will be the break you need.

Janine Darnell

Great eclectic mix - from title cut to "You Get What You Settle For". Solid - looking forward to a live performance.
