“This album is a celebration of the 10-year anniversary of my first record, ‘Invisible War’, which ends with an a-cappella fragment of this song ‘When Something Falls Apart’, and I finally finished the song a few weeks ago. It never felt right to finish until now, and it ended up being the perfect piece to bookend this era of my music.”
Touching, gripping. Enchanting, ravishing. In its powers to bring you up to a level of feeling significant – that’s where MERRY ELLEN KIRK brings us with this single from her live and latest album ’10 Years / 7 Songs’.
We’d commented about Merry Ellen: “Her emotional eviscerations through her singles are cinematic extravaganzas – sultry in terms and masterfully rapturous… Her emotional eviscerations through her singles are cinematic extravaganzas – sultry in terms and masterfully rapturous.”
And that demonstration of control and eviscerating emotions, cut right through, as her beautifully full and expressive vocals, charm with bright and angular romance. It is the love of the tone and delivery where her lyrics shine even brighter. From there the honesty of prolonged beckoning – that angst of self doubt and maybe misconstrued identity – comes glued again and strengthens.
The effervescent positivity lingers like antibiotics in ‘When Something Falls Apart’.
Quite an offer, indeed.
Merry is based out of Missouri, originating from Nashville.
