Feature of the Week
The Listening Room Feature Album:
Artist: Molly Healey
Genre: Progressive Folk
WellSpring Publishing World Headquarters was at the Fairbanks in Springfield, Missouri, this past Saturday for the release of Molly Healey’s outstanding sophomore album, Human — The Listening Room’s feature CD. We can say with certainty that those who buy this album are in for a treat. Those who can catch Healey live and buy the album, even more so.
Healey’s CD Baby post says Human is a “creative and introspective blend of orchestral and rock instrumentations” whose “original sound can be described as folk-inspired orchestral looping.” The songs — written or co-written by Healey, except for a prefect, cello-ladled interpretation of Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun — range from hauntingly beautiful tales of love and loss to as funky jazzy cool as the best of Steely Dan.
Springfield music writer, Ed Peaco, in his final column for The News Leader says of Human: “Electric guitarist Zach Harrison plays authoritative lines for different settings, from high-impact solo to atmospheric background. Bassist Kyle Day has been working with Healey for five years, providing a foundation for her flights of violin and cello. Drummer Danny Carroll and Dallas Jones (backing vocals) are on the CD.”
