Carly Sings

Two great things happened in the life of Carly Blackman, aka Carly Sings (I have posted about her before). Her first album The Glove Thief was released, sporting a great cover. Carly lives in Paris, and who did she meet there? J-C Vannier. Yes, the genius behind Melody Nelson. She asked him if he would write arrangements for her next cd, AND HE SAID YES! Amazing story, but true.
The Glove Thief is a highly recommendable album, featuring gentle (and funny) songs about love 'n life, sometimes sung just by Carly (her voice is a cross between Inara George and El Perro del Mar) and her guitar, sometimes she adds keys, flute or 'apocalyptic percussion'. Two songs are sung in a Blossom Dearie-ish French, very charming. Can't wait for that next album, but The Glove Thieve makes the waiting more bearable.
