Review: Kirsten Adamson – Landing Place

I could probably listen to Adamson’s voice all day every day, it’s angelic! The daughter of Scottish musician Stuart Adamson, Kirsten has certainly got the musical gene. Her voice is reminiscent of Emmylou Harris and Clare Bowen whilst her songwriting reminds me of Beth Nielsen Chapman. The production on this record perfectly frames those gorgeous vocals and superbly written lyrics so credit must be given to Dean Owens. My favourite track is ‘My Father’s Songs’, the detailed and personal track gives insight into Kirsten’s journey in music. ‘Time With You’ has a theatricality about it as the pedal steel swirls and tugs at the heart strings, the melancholy finger-picking guitar lays the foundation of the track. The melodies are given the space and freedom to soar. It’s a really beautiful record on the whole from an incredibly talented musician. Thank goodness it crossed my desk!
