"Grace Millo - "Simply""

I have a BIG problem when it comes to this stunning debut solo album from New York's Grace Millo... I haven't been able to get the damned thing off my turntable since I bought it over a month ago! It's stuck...and so are the songs, in my head. I even have a tape of it jammed in my Walkman now!

Lyrically, this album goes beyond anything I have encountered before (and I was an international music journalist for over 6 years). Her songs wrap themselves around your heart like a velvet cloak, touching its depths with a gentle embrace.

"Empty Space" is the standout commercial track which (if there was any justice in the world) is worthy of a Grammy nomination. "Unjaded in Jeans" contains threads of Bowie's "Suffragette City" I'd love to hear Grace wrap her tonsils around that one!

All in all, this album reflects the emotions of a soul who has travelled a challenging journey through life. A free spirit who has lived, laughed, loved, and sometimes lost, but above all has triumphed and emerged with strength and power. For evidence of this check out "If Wishes Were True", "How Was Heaven When You Left Today" and the hit in waiting "Empty Space".

This is an album I picked up on impulse yet whose songs touch my soul so much I "simply" can't let it go.

In ending I am drawn to paraphrase the tongue in cheek "People Should Come With Plans"..."CD's should come with warnings...this one can cause severe addiction!" However on this occassion I'll forgo rehab...some things, like ice cream are a "sweet addiction". - Music Press UK - Lee Penman

"GRACE - Reviewed live at Le Bar Bat, Feb. 26th, 2003"

"This band is a solid and knowledgable blend of folk-rock with pop flavoring - Grace's vocals are both poetic and powerful and the songs have clear, coherent and melodic structure." - RIPE Reviews
