An acoustic collection of six songs, this is the debut release from Sofia Ekberg, a Swedish singer/songwriter. Her sweet vocal carries the songs along in an easy style while a strong folk influence comes through in the storytelling narrative of songs.
These songs cover topics such as Alzheimer’s (All the Small Details); divorce and the childhood questions and insecurities that result (Let it Slip Away). Self- awareness and growth is referenced in Happy Feet and Fire in my Heart and there are two songs in her native tongue, which pose a challenge, but you can still enjoying the melody and arrangements.
The playing is light and restrained and the best song is reserved until last with Goodnight Sally, a lullaby for adults who need comfort and reassurance against the uncertainty of life.
