Most recent release, Play On (2012)
Karen Matheson of Capercaillie
Own, cowritten with Noel Dinn, and Noel Dinn's songs
Very smooth pop. Doesn't usually hit within my radar, but her work in Figgy Duff and with Anita Best made me notice her stunning voice. If I listen to it and not the songs, I love this. Those with a more friendly relationship with smooth pop will LOVE this. (Neile)
Recommended first album:
The Collection might be a good place to start as it is a sampler of all her work, including that with Figgy Duff
1996—Sleeping Giant Music/Amber Music (Canada)—7771 7001-2
In Canadian places that carry indie releases
Recommended only for soft pop fans
Pamela Morgan—vocals, tin whistle, keyboard, acoustic guitar
Sandy Morris—12-string guitar, high-strung guitar, acoustic guitar, slide guitar,
Pamela Morgan has a stunning voice, and the combination here of traditional instruments backing pop songs makes for a smooth sound where her voice really has a chance to shine. (Neile)
