Album Notes
Review by Jacob Gross,
A blend of Americana, Folk, Country, Blues, and Rock is the best way to describe Vicky Emerson’s album, Reach. The album transports the listener to the expansive plains of the Midwest and brings all the hardships and joys of simple American life into plain view. She makes the listener take an album-long walk in her “pair of empty boots.”

Her angelic voice initially draws the listener into the album, and her virtuosic piano playing and poetic songwriting keep the listener engaged and entranced in the album’s ascending and descending flow. She combines interesting, genre-blending beats with seamless vocal harmonies to create an uncommonly catchy and enjoyable sound.

As the album progresses, the emotional tone rises and falls with alternating upbeat, high-spirited songs and more downhearted, reduced-tempo ballads. “Anymore” is a strong, jamming, bluesy song that highlights her independent, self-actualized character and confident attitude. This feeling is quickly reversed by the following track “Empty Boots,” which is probably the most original and impressive song on the album. It is a depressingly reminiscent ballad of a woman who is tormented by the presence of her deceased lover’s empty boots. It portrays true sorrow with the use of inventive, moving lyrics, eerie harmonies, and vividly dramatic violin melodies, leaving the listener feeling as if they have had a captivating spell cast upon them.

This album is without a doubt a remarkable work of musicianship and creativity. It is artfully mastered and precisely produced so the sound is professional but not at all overdone. Even though this is not one of Vicky’s most recent albums, it is definitely a gem on her discography, and anyone impressed by this album should check out her latest release, self-titled Vicky Emerson, which hit shelves in 2007.

White Key Records Inc.

Inspiring, Loving, with a sense of reflection...
I had the plessure to meet Vicky, @ A borders In Store Performance... And she is so amazing live... Her Album... Reach, is a top choice on my list!! EVERYBODY GET IT!

Scott Miller: Houston, Texas

Incredible music with great introspection
I was greatly moved by the music and the lyrics jumped out at me with such purity. I still have goose bumps from Poor Farmer Man and Reach. This is a great song writer with powerfull stories and a beautiful, soulful voice.

Mimi Biskus

I heard Vicky when she was on WGN radio with Steve and Johnnie in Chicago last month. When she sang "Empty Boots" I knew I had to get the CD.

Chris Wieman

This is a must have CD. I would have to say it is Vicky's best yet. One of my favorite songs on the CD is Tomorrow. What makes it even more special is that it was written for her parents anniversary. Vicky is truely an amazing artist and this cd reflects her incredible talent.


Poor Farmer Man made me cry
The whole cd is terrific...but the song Poor Farmer Man made me cry.

Tracy Miller (Pleasant Hill, CA)

Excellent piece of work.
I have all of Vicky Emerson's CD's. This is by far her best work. Her writing, her voice, her musicianship (not to mention being the producer!) are all phenomenal on this project. I look forward to the next record!!

Clarity... voice, music, words.
Clarity... in the crisp voice being heard, the background music being played, and the meaningful words in which so many of us can relate. There is most certainly a main theme within album which is noticeable, and I love that. The more passion within music, the better the music. This album is filled with passion.

Best One Yet!
Vicky's CD's keep getting better and better and she has never sounded better than she does on this one. From the hot-blooded title track to the beautiful tribute to her mother and father, "Tomorrow", Vicky shows her versatility as a singer, a songwriter and a producer. There is such depth and beauty on each one of these songs that I find myself listening to them over and over.
Vicky is an up and coming singer/songwriter who is starting to turn heads in the music business and this CD has the potential to take her career to the next level.

Lisa Fischer

Must Have
REACH hasn’t moved from the number one spot in my CD player since I put it there.

If you've ever been lucky enough to see Vicky live, then you'll be pleased to know REACH captures that mix of freshness, warmth and vitality that only Vicky seems able to balance and deliver oh-so well. Vicky has literally found her voice with REACH and combined with her ever genius piano playing, she cannot miss. If you’ve liked Vicky’s work in the past, prepare to fall in love with her now.

Favorite track? The one that’s playing.
