Water Falls Down
Music Connection Magazine ~ 'Over Euro-inflected grooves and airy orchestration, songwriter and artist Robin Frederick lays a suite of brilliantly performed songs.' WATER FALLS DOWN (REMASTERED) includes all of the tracks from the original CD version plus brand new recordings of Robin's folk classic 'Sandy Grey.' Originally recorded by John Martyn, Robin has never commercially released this song which she wrote for Nick Drake... until now. This album includes two versions, a folk/rock mix and an acoustic guitar bonus mix. Album available at CD Baby November 10, 2007. Hailed as 'a miraculous breakthrough into a feeling world' by British music critic Ian MacDonald, the songs on WATER FALLS DOWN explore the heart of love and loss. Robin's vocal style blends the intimacy of Norah Jones and the silkiness of Enya with the classic, laid-back phrasing of Dusty Springfield. The Electro-Acoustic backing tracks create a downtempo atmosphere shaded with Dance, Jazz/Pop, and World Beat. Robin is a master of her craft, a songwriter, poet, and storyteller with a unique and compelling vision. John Braheny, author of The Craft and Business of Songwriting says: 'I love it! Musically mystical and evocative with enough body grounding groove to balance it. Lyrically cliche-free with some profound observations.'

The lyrics are haunting and intriguing poetry; the music is engaging with a Sting-like sophistication; Robin's voice is beautifully gentle and mysterious, a fitting counterpoint to the energy of the songs. The production values are nothing short of gorgeous. '
