CD Reviews: Mahoney Harris

Mahoney Harris' debut album has obviously been a long time coming.

By that, I don't mean it's stale; rather that plenty of hours have been spent honing the nine tracks before Harris has allowed her babies to be rocked by others.

It's a wise move as We Didn't Feel Alone possesses instances of real lyrical heft as well as benefiting from the visceral talents of a range of musicians, including multi-instrumentalist Wayne Bell, who offers some excellent drumming, and former Dunedin guitar-slinger Tom Healy who, as producer, helps complete a subtly vibrant picture, topped by Harris' beautiful voice.

•  Mahoney Harris. We Didn't Feel Alone. Independent

•   Three and a half stars (out of five)
