Hollweg, Rebecca : Orange Roses
This is the second album from British singer-songwriter Rebecca Hollweg, featuring 9 of her country-tinged songs about life and love. Initial reactions suggest it will build on the critical acclaim she got for 'June Babies', and there is a new warmth in the beautiful voice we heard on the last album. Featuring her band of exceptional young British musicians, this is an album you can listen to in one sitting and one mood, and find something of your own in her personal songs. Rebecca supported Roger McGuinn of the Byrds on his UK tours for 2 years running, followed by a support tour for Paul Carrack (formerly of Squeeze and Mike & the Mechanics). She has appeared on several BBC national radio shows and had good reviews in the national and music press. 'Exquisite vocals' The Guardian 'A talented tunesmith, happy to wrangle words into memorable phrases' Q 'There is something of Joni in her soaring vocal lines and Vega in her confessional ones' The Sunday Times.
