Fans of Regina Spektor will take to this artist, whose soft, supple, artful songs are intriguing mood pieces about life and love, each one seasoned with cello, which is Sarah Clanton’s primary instrument. Altogether soothing is “Silver Lining” with its angelic intro, reverbed guitar and lone snare drum played with a gentle touch. The mid-song duet by cello and guitar is effective. “I Can See You” is hopeful and optimistic with a hook and cello break that really pleases the ear. While Clanton brings intelligence and emotion in equal measure, we feel her articulation could be a bit more clear at times. And, we would like to hear even more range from this singer, whose soothing tones are already quite alluring.
