Jennifer Crook’s vocals shine on the melancholy record, The Broken Road Back Home. The album has been ten years in the making and her beautifully crafted lyrics are perfectly framed by multi-platinum award-winning engineer Stuart Bruce who is on production duties for this one. Previously released song ‘Battle Scars’ is a stand out track as Crooks injects emotion into her vocal performance. Meanwhile, ‘Build A Shelter’ is a very well written track, the lyrics really stand out. Whilst, the final track ‘Lay Your Weary Head Down To Rest’ is a fitting end to a wonderful album. It feels familiar and soothing. This record is some of Crooks finest work to date and it will be good to hear them in a live setting. If you appreciate great songwriting then it’s well worth a listen!
