"Alchemy" by Allene Rohrer (Folk/Pop artist from San Francisco, California (CA))

"Alchemy" by Allene Rohrer is a collection of beautiful, well-produced folk songs. What makes this album unique is its full, layered sound. Every track is fresh and innovative. Some tracks exude pure acoustic beauty, while others exhibit elements of blues and rock. Moreover, Allene's voice is soothing, determined, and backed by superb musicianship. Highlights include "Never There," which demonstrates lovely acoustic guitar work, and introduces a bit of an Island feel. Furthermore, the vocals on this track are timeless and layered with heavenly harmonies. "True Hearted Man" is a 'low-light' blues number with stunningly intimate vocals. Additionally, "Water" reprises the Island feel and features beautiful harmonies and soulful lyrics. If you like Kate Bush or The Carpenters, you'll like this one.
