Singing the Songs of My Heart
Singing the Songs of My Heart' is the family-oriented easy listening debut from singer/songwriter Linda Kay Burk. Linda Kay uses great imagery and narrative structure and draws from her own life experience to weave together these soothing and positive songs of comfort and joy. Particularly prevalent is her imagery of the great outdoors, as she sings about butterflies, dolphins, swimming, and playing outside. Each song is kid-friendly and some are outright children's songs, but her strong and soothing vocal performance and great, piano-driven arrangements give adults something to enjoy as well. The recording quality of 'Singing the Songs of My Heart' is great, and the entire album sounds polished and professional. 'I Believe in Miracles' is a ballad about Linda Kay's personal healing process, a more adult contemporary track with a fitting soft arrangement and a great vocal performance. 'Live in the Moment, Now!' begins with the sound of crashing waves and a nice piano introduction, then turns into a song about taking the time to play with your children, to share joy with them and to live for today. Linda Kay Burk offers her heart and ten positive, uplifting tracks that can be appreciated by the entire family with her debut, 'Singing the Songs of My Heart.' If you are a parent who enjoys easy listening, adult contemporary and want a great album to put your child to sleep with, pick up this album. -Chris & the RadioIndy.com Review Team.
