ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In the glorious tradition of true singer-songwriters telling us intimate tales of love, the mesmerizing Marsha Malamet whirls us away into an emotional sea where the enigma of love stirs our senses as it bubbles beneath the surface of deep waters. Every word is delivered with intense feeling and meaning, and every time I hear her sing, I think, “this is the voice of an angel.”

The poignant “Love Don’t Need a Reason,” an anthem to honor those stricken with AIDS, co-written with the late brilliant Peter Allen and Michael Callen, tugs at the heartstrings with the words 'Love is all we have for now/What we don’t have is time.' In the evocative “The Same Moon,” a song with a great New York vibe, Malamet sings of estranged lovers on different coasts; 'It’s finally turned cold in LA. I walked down the streets/that burned with the heat/But now turns to steam in the rain.' With the intriguing “Starfish,” Malamet offers a look at our human frailty in facing those who are casualties of life’s hard road. “Love comes back,” elevates Malamet’s angelic voice as she delivers Liz Vidal’s haunting lyric 'I cannot help but sometimes wish/I wasn’t quite as cruel as this,' a song of the woman who waits for her love who will never return from war. “Wonderful Work of Art,” is a song written for a film about a relationship between a child and an imaginary alien being. Nestled within a melody Malamet aficionados will recognize as vintage Marsha, is a story of wonder and being part of something greater than self.

The uptempo “This is my Time,” is a song of hope’s rebirth, kindling love and all it’s possibilities; 'Life can truly be/A canvas I can paint my dreams upon…' When you hear Malamet deliver her quirky “You Asked Me To Write You A Love Song,” you can imagine the songstress at a baby grand on a cabaret stage, with the ever-present twinkle in her eye, as she sings about love that fizzled out. The fascinating “Murmur of the Heart,” draws the listener into a scenario of two lovers sensing they met and were denied love in a past life, 'We have ancient ties. And I knew your hands. They danced with mine to the rhythms known.' When Malamet sings her own lyrics '…Life is filled with surprises/We make an unlikely pair' in “We Will have Our Day,” you can hear the smile in her voice as she delivers a song of making love triumph , that sparks hope in each of us. “Dreamstuff,” is Marsha Malamet at her best, showing us the full range of her voice. Written early in her career, this paean to hope and dreams come true will fill you up with a wonder and optimism you may have mislaid along the way. A true original, Marsha Malamet is one of the finest songwriters in the world. Her chord choices and melodic inventions are a true confection for the ears.
