The best kept secret in music


"Larry Nager"

In the April 3, 1998 Weekend issue of the Cincinnati Enquirer,
Larry Nager wrote of Collier's most recent CD release, Song Gallery, "Fresh and heartfelt, this is as good a singer-songwriter
project as any of the major labels have managed to recently produce."

CD Release Gigs
A couple of very different CD release parties are in the clubs this coming Friday.
Over at Newport's York St. Café on Friday, talented singer/songwriter Chris Collier will be celebrating her impressive new disc, Song Gallery.
The record is the follow-up to her debut , the acoustic, minimal Further.
This time out, Collier fleshes out the tracks with a full band, making the songs more fully realized
while retaining the heart and essence so capably displayed on her previous effort.
While a little folksy, the textural nature of the disc coupled with her captivating vocals and a top-notch collection of backing musicians
(notably violinist Karen Addie, drummer Jeff Monroe and guitarist Steve Sigsbee) helps Song Gallery transcend easy categorization.
Essentially, the album is a rootsy, organic journey that, if you're a fan of acts like the Indigo Girls and Dar Williams or even Gillian Welch and Sarah McLachlan,
you won't want to end.
Collier's well-written musings are certainly on par with the bigger Adult Alternative acts that garner national attention.
She's absolutely deserving of similar acclaim.
