Cry Me A Torch Song – the video version: December 2017

24 Dec

The December 2017 issue of Cry Me A Torch Song – The Video Version. Piers Ford reviews albums from Ange Hardy (Bring Back Home: “A voice with a pure and timeless quality, and sometimes seem to come through the airwaves like a nurturing echo from another age”); Karine Polwart (A Pocket of Wind Resistance: “A sensual exploration of territory and behaviour, compelling in its entirety”); Jane McDonald (Hold the Covers Back: “A polished collection of ballads and survival anthems, peppered with soul and gospel references”), and Sheridan Smith (Sheridan: “An accomplished album which showcases Smith’s interpretive gifts nicely – and much more than an identikit set of covers”).
