Rebeka Reed opens a vista of audio wonder & melodic ambiance. The melding of styles & original content are expansive & inviting. This Canadian chanteuse is a naturally gifted & emerging powerhouse of effortless musical magic & verve.

"Out On The Moor" opens with acoustic guitars & world beat nuance, mixed with world & eclectic touches. This piece has a soundscape that is beguiling in it's aural nature. A subtle orchestration is coupled with a touch of baroque folk. A real gem of a song.

"Water From Ice" drives a percussive intro down a road of mainstream magnetism , with a post modern approach. Rebeka Reed's vocal prowess is especially alluring; Her delivery is silky smooth & sultry , whilst at the same time warmly personable.

"Pharaoh's Daughter" reflects a cascade of light, with a mixture of earthy pop alternative charm. Fluid production combining layered Vox & subtle instrumental flourishes, enhance this music's beguiling nature. Eastern synthesis overtones & electric guitar flashes add to the atmosphere.

Rebeka Reed establishes her own brand of sonic style in such a beguiling manner. Her breezy vocals have the fullness & structure that rides the sky-line of music. The versatile components of her musical vision & abilities are a hidden treasure.

Weather in front of a camera or behind a microphone, Rebeka Reed seems to have the light shining on her either way. With the release of Pharaoh’s Daughter, Rebeka will undoubtedly find that even more attention is focused on her than ever before.

A pure pop/light rock CD if there ever was one, song after song could easily be played on radio stations across the country. From the beautifully soulful Song For Becky (my personal favorite) to the pop dance style of the title song, there is no reason for any of the songs on this disc not to be a hit.

She lists some of her influences as Jann Arden, Tori Amos and Ani DiFranco. You can certainly hear the resemblance to these artists, but Reed also manages to carve out a style and sound that is her own. This young lady has obviously surrounded herself with some very good talent. The studio musicians used are top notch, the mixing and production of the disc are excellent, and the overall look of the packaging very professional.

Much traveled in her relatively short life, Rebeka has appeared in movies, hosted the CBC program Street Cents, and did voice-overs. She has lived in British Columbia, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Las Angeles.

Strengths: Very professional in all aspects. Pop that could easily be on any top 40 hit list and not be out of place.

Weaknesses: Pop that could easily be on any top 40 hit list and not be out of place.
I know! How can it be a strength and a weakness? Simple. This disc has hit potential written all over it. It could easily be a “break through” CD. Personally speaking however, I prefer something a little more off of the beaten path. As well done as this is, it is a little predictable at times.

Overall, I’m giving this disk a 4 out of 5 because it is such a professional job it matters little if I like it or not.
