GRACE KNIGHT : FRAGILE

 

Grace Knight’s latest album Fragile is beautiful and, at times, haunting; a lovely collection of folk and Celtic songs that the listener can easily listen to any time of the day or night. It is an album of hope and love, an album that you cannot help but feel relaxed and happy when listening to it.


Written by Bernie Lynch (of Eurogliders fame) this album highlights Grace’s beautiful voice in a style that many of us have not heard her sing before. Well known as the singer of 80’s pop group Eurogliders and for her jazz recordings, this album has taken Grace back to her beginnings, folk music.

 

The stand out tracks for me are track 2 ‘Wonderful Night’ and Track 7 ‘Blessed’; two different sounding tracks but both upbeat in their own way.

 

Listening to 'Wonderful Night', I couldn’t help but feel happy. I found myself swaying and singing along to this song, rejoicing what a wonderful world we do live in. The harmonies, ukulele and whistling are perfect for this upbeat track.

 

Blessed’ has a very Irish Celtic sound and, again, I found myself swaying and singing along to this track. The Irish sound had me picturing lovers skipping across the green fields of Ireland feeling lucky and in love.

 

The lyrics of these songs coupled with Grace’s vocals do enable the listener to imagine the story unfolding and with each listen I find my imagination opening up further. I could easily write here a description of what I see in my mind as I listen to each song, but I would prefer you to use your own imagination, to interpret the songs for yourself and enjoy not just the music and stories but also the journey.

 

The album is available now at www.graceknight.com.au
