A very nice song, good lyrics and melody. This song could be on country radio. - Billboard Song Contest


Seven songs and one bonus track on one EP; Rebecca Hosking doesn’t need more to convince us thoroughly that she is more than just another promising singer-songwriter. Hosking probably thought that it was better to make one very good EP than a half-good full-cd, and she was right, because this record doesn’t bore you for one second. The singer lives and works in Nashville, Tennessee, and seems to have picked up mostly the good things in this town (which is a feat in and of itself). Her music can probably best be described as country/Americana with a nice upbeat, that sucks you into irresistible sing-a-long refrains. With regards to the theme, the title of the EP covers it, even though the sometimes painful (love) experiences are covered up with summer sweet melodies, without ever being corny. It is pure enjoyment, for all 24 minutes. The would-be radio hit “Roll Over” blows in like a cooling wind on a much too hot summers day. Guitar, banjo and the lovely vocals of Rebecca, with backings from one of her musicians, are enough to make the country like title song and “Last Chance Café” modest, but oh so very beautiful listening pearls. And we haven’t even discussed the compelling beauty of “Robert would say” (about the American poet Robert Frost) of which we cannot get enough, or the brilliant acoustic guitar and dobroduel “Love is blind”. On the very beautiful bonus track “Lost is Found” Rebecca Hosking nearly reaches the level of one of her major examples: Emmylou Harris. Summarized: “Love and other disasters” is a wonderful, heartwarming record by an artist of which we will hopefully hear a lot in the near future.
