Pippa Drysdale: Fire in The Snow [Glowbug PDFTTS200801]
Here’s a very pleasing album from another new young singer-songwriter. She’s got a great voice with a slight scratchiness that adds a charming quality to the well-crafted songs and tunes.
I’m told she’s booked to appear at Beachdown Festival near Devil’s Dyke, Brighton later in the summer. She’ll go down a storm – the songs have just the right sort of relaxed ambience for an outdoor setting on a sultry summer evening.
Pippa’s flavour is far more Greenwich Village than the Sak’s Fifth Avenue suggested by the CD cover illustration.
