Boomkat Product Review:
British ex-pat Essie Jane Wilkinson was snatched from our fair lands by Americans desperate to make her a star with a musical development deal, luckily for the real listeners out there though this didn't break her spirit and the resulting collection of songs, a reaction to the trials and tribulations of that largest of Cox's is breathtakingly beautiful. The first thing you notice from the 28 year-old singer songwriter is her incredible voice; breathy and distinct it is no doubt that she would have picked up major label interest at some point, and it's wonderful to hear a voice like that framed with these simple, honest folk songs. Slowly paced and harrowingly sentimental, Essie Jain sounds like she is whispering in your ear as you drift off to sleep, calmly telling you she is leaving you, touching your left arm and breathing sweet nothings - she has real character and that's something to behold. Although the songs might at first seem simple and bravely stripped down, once you get drawn in by Wilkinson's voice and her love-laced lyrics they are impossible to forget. I realize there's something of an abundance of singer-songwriter music around now but female vocalists this endearing rarely come my way, and there's a sense that Essie Jane is a new-folk talent that will grow and grow. Following in Beirut's footsteps on the influential Ba Da Bing label, she's certainly positioned well too - I get the feeling this won't be the last we hear from her... Recommended!
