An introspective intelligence is captured with a tasteful production touch on these recordings by U.K.-based Sabine Kerssemakers. The subtle buildup of elements in “Over” (a song of resiliance in the face of a sudden breakup) is impressive as it develops from a simple voice-and-guitar song to a rich, well-layered (but not overwrought) production. Sabine switches to piano for the next two songs, both of which (“Heart of Mine” and “Colour...”) benefit from skillful structure and the naturally deep resonance of the artist’s voice, whose lyrics explore the complexity of the human heart. We urge Sabine to continue to push herself vocally, strengthen her voice to deliver textures and colors that are still untapped.
