Broadway Artist Explores New Territory. (Country/Pop)
Linda Eder has a solid fan base for her confident Broadway stylings. In "The Other Side of Me" she branches out into new territory. It's a bit of country, a bit of pop, a bit of jazz & a bit of folk. <BR/><BR/>I find her voice particularly suited to country singing. It's strong & melodic, very beautiful & easy to listen to. She covers songs by a wide variety of artists, giving fresh interpretations of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now" & "Ghost" by Emily Saliers. Listening to Eder, I hear these songs in a whole new way.<BR/><BR/>My favourite cut is "They Are the Roses," in which children are seen as roses & our hope for the future. "Make Today Beautiful" is also uplifting. "No matter what I face, I'm going to make today beautiful" is a great song to listen to at the end of a long day. <BR/><BR/>The only song penned by Eder is "Waiting for the Fall." It's a gutsy statement by a woman choosing to make changes in a bad relationship - fastpaced & empowering for anyone who's been in a similar situation. I enjoy Eder's covers of work by other artists, but she has a talent for songwriting herself. I hope we'll hear more of this side of her on her next album.Was this review helpful?
