Right away GhostE had us with her haunting voice, which is skillfully captured on her artful, multilayered mixes. These recordings would easily enhance a film or TV soundtrack; it’s the kind of stuff that envelopes the listener in a mood, transports them to another zone. It’s also clear that this artist’s voice is a flexible instrument that can go low or high, depending on the needs of the material and the whims of the poetic lyrics. “Deep Water” (with its artfully muffled sound effects that suggest drowning) and “Hold On” (with its ingenious vocal harmony layering) are very good. Best for us (and most commercial) is “Slow Motion,” an uptempo, AC, New Age-ish outing with whiffs of Enya and Imogen Heap.
