I feel a better comparison can be made with Loreena McKennitt than with Clannad
On this website from Robyn Sutherland is an invitation to write a review about her new CD Tempest Lament.
I gladly take the opportunity to do this.

As said on this website her music has, " Haunting harmonies adorn beautiful melodies and dreamily melt into subtle layers of old sounds Likened to Clannad and Enya"

Being a big fan of Loreena McKennitt and having 6 of her Cd's, Loreena is the best performer I have ever seen and heard in this genre of music.
I feel a better comparison can be made with Loreena McKennitt than with Clannad or Enya and that is a big compliment! As she is the best for sure!.

Robyn not only looks like her but she also has the same breath taking voice and stunning style. She plays many instruments with the same gentle feel and smile to boost.

When I saw Robyn performing some years ago I was stunned to see and hear a Celtic performer playing harp! and sounding Like McKennitt here in New Zealand.

By chance I found Robyn's website some years later and listen to the sound samples of "Tempest Lament" and was even more surprised!

The recording quality is outstanding with the perfect mix and feel.

You would think it was recorded in a London studio with George Martin, the producer for the Beatles and Hayley Westenra with a massive budget.

The Sound is dreamy and almost hypnotic to listen to, on 2 tracks you hear Chris Watts on Saxophone, the sound and feel is exceptional and blends in with the songs is a non intrusive way .

9 of the 13 songs are written and composed by Robyn, that shows her talent is unlimited.

The website and CD cover are designed by Brett Orams and express the atmosphere of the Music as well. Well done~!.

The whole production is A 1!

This CD can stand up with the best in music, sound, recording and production by anyone in the world and for a small budget project that is remarkable.

When I write a review on music as I have done for years for my own music magazine and other publications, you often need to make a comparison with other artists to describe the sort of music on the CD you like to review.
Now days you have MP3 sound samples, as on Robyn's exceptionally well designed website, with one click of the mouse, you hear what the music is all about and that makes it a lot simpler.

Please listen to the sound samples of this great CD production and be proud that this CD is Kiwi made without the help of the big record company's.
Most of them are mainly interested in Hiphop and Rap as that is cheap to produce.
I hope they wake up one day to spot the talent of Robyn and release her music to a world wide audience of Celtic and old English music lovers like me!

Thanks for this wonderful CD and hope you get the recognition you deserve with this production.
