Album Review: "Pieces of Forever" by Laura Sullivan (8/10)

Distributed by: Sentient Spirit Records

Producer: Eric Sullivan

Grammy-winning composer Laura Sullivan is renowned for taking dusty musical styles and reframing them to suit modern tastes. Previously, she’s dabbled in genres as diverse as new age, pop, and Native American. This trend continues on Pieces of Forever, which observers might describe as uncommon classical with an ambient-leaning Americana twist.

A deeply personal tribute to her late parents, she paints memories of her childhood growing up on their farm as they infused her with the joys of music and a lust for life. Amazingly, she deftly evokes a range of emotions and imagery without a single lyric.
