CD Review: Amy Cook Sheds Her "Summer Skin" With Help From Friends
Her slightly smoky voice fits in so comfortably with the music on the opening track “Waiting For The World” that you instantly find yourself a fan. The harmonies supplied by Robert Plant on “It’s Gonna Rain” easily makes this one of the stand-out tracks on the album with Amy’s gentle flowing heartfelt lyrics. Her tone gets a little darker on the moody, six-minute, Doors-type rocker “Airplane Driver,” which features guest vocals by Patty Griffin. Amy Cook gets playful with her lyrics on “Hello Bunny” and simplifies her sound on the acoustic “Levee.” The album closes with “Heart Is A Ghost” as Amy’s vocals matches the lyrics and mood of the song perfectly.
Amy Cook is currently on tour in the Midwest before heading back out to California in October. For more information on her new album “Summer Skin,” please visit amycook.com.
