Yes, more Scottish talent. This album represents a collection of Ms Scotson's studio and home recorded tracks from the last 3 years.

Sensitively performed and arranged throughout, this album highlights both her song writing and her sweet voice. The songs all seem to be very personal. Perhaps this is what makes them so affecting. Our favourite tracks were the gentle and poetic "The Moon and the Sea" and the impassioned "Love Undercover". Curiously enough, the album ends with sounds suspiciously like a child singing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star".

It seems to the BluesBunny that these modern day singer-songwriters must split their time between song writing and having failed relationships. BluesBunny feels like he should give them all a cuddle but they will have to settle for a recommendation instead. An honest and touching selection of songs that you will return to time and time again.

Available only as a download at present. You can get the 10 tracks from Scotloads.
