Singing, writing, producing and recording herself, Gabriele Morgan wields a sharp blade of emotional truth sheathed in gorgeous musical arrangements in the service of telling her tales of human foibles and experience. You won't feel it go in but you will never forget the turn of it once it reaches your heart.
Instrumental #1 is a moody blues-tinged piano piece written when the artist was 15, which languished in memory until many years later when it was finally recorded. A lush swath of strings come in on the bridge giving this bittersweet interlude a satisfying elevation on its quiet way out into the shadows.
Instrumental #1 is one of the Secret Child song cycle collection.
