Album: Thea Gilmore / Sandy Denny, Don't Stop Singing (Mighty Village / Island)

A collaborative effort between the Oxfordshire singer-songwriter Gilmore and the hitherto-unscored lyrics of her long-dead Northamptonshire equivalent, Sandy Denny.

Denny wrote romantic, slightly overwrought words about her own feelings and sensibilities and Gilmore tackles them head-on. Her voice is often beautiful. The result? A slightly over-orchestrated set of semi-powerful ballads, which is deeply felt and worthy of your interest. Where does the time go?
