Product Notes

'... like love at first sight...' Roger Wise, Restless Mornings '...an incisive lyricist... songs that deserve a close listen.' David Francey '...oh, this is nice on the soul.' Indiecan Music '...let her gorgeous voice wash over you...' Sing Out! Magazine '... The performances cut to the bone...' Bill Garrett, Borealis Records '...full of heart and soul...' Mark Michaelis, Acoustic Harmony ........................................................................................................................ Rosemary has run the gamut from calling square dances in the hills of northern Vermont to singing Mozart in the halls of the Royal Conservatory. Somewhere between the barn and the opera house she found the music of her heart. The grace, gifts and losses encountered during her years as a visiting nurse in the urban core, and those spent eking out a hard-won living in the bush, are alive in Rosemary's songs. She sincerely hopes the goodness she has found at the root of it all is, too................................................................................................................... REVIEWS '... I must say that rarely am I so impressed with a CD at first listen. ... this truly is a joy; it's like love at first sight. If you truly believe it, then your are afraid to revisit it, although you must return... [it] makes me wish for a broken heart and an end to war and a return to optimism.' Roger Wise, Restless Mornings ............................................... "With the release of 'Avalanche Lily', Toronto-based singer songwriter Rosemary Phelan has created a beacon in what can often be a wasteland of acoustic music. Each song in the collection provides a personal, clear-eyed view of life's vistas. There is the realization of the depth of love in 'Silver Threads', the inspiration of nature captured in 'The Nesting Bird'... a soldier's overwhelming sense of duty in the sorrowful 'The Ballad of Tom Stone'... Not to mention my personal favourite from the album, 'Lay Your Burden Down', an anthem to hope and helping if there ever was one. Phelan has supplemented her gorgeous voice with some of Toronto's finest backup musicians, including Jason LaPrade, David Woodhead, Dave Clarke, Chris Coole, Suzie Vinnick and Adam Warner. Each contributes to an understated yet powerful collection that will, in my opinion, quickly become a standard. Add a dash of hope and a shred of inspiration and presto! You have a CD that comforts and inspires all in the same moment. Well done Rosemary Phelan, I only hope that I don't wear the CD out too quickly through constant use." Steve Clarke, Acoustic Planet ........................................................................................................................
