A Big Leap Forward

I've been following Eliza Gilkyson on and off since her Santa Fe days, and her abilities as a singer and songwriter have grown with each new release. But, for the longest time, I felt her Linda Ronstadt-ie vocal mannerisms kept her from being as good as she could be.

"Land of Milk and Honey," is a big leap forward. It's as if all her music and lyric writing to date were preparing her for this work. Every song is top notch and filled with emotional intelligence, and her backup, as always, is terrific. And, I couldn't detect a bit of Linda!

Thanks to "Folk Alley," for consistently playing her work. That's where I heard, "Peace Call," and jumped right to Amazon.com to buy the cd.

Looking forward to hearing, "Paradise Hotel," which looks to be selling very well.

Good on Eliza!
