Mare Wakefield & Nomad — Time To Fly
True happiness is back! Put on Americana/folk duo Mare Wakefield & Nomad’s new album, Time To Fly, and you’ll hear what I mean. By “happiness,” I don’t mean to imply a constant smiley-faced state; I am talking about the pleasure that comes from discovering artists who do what they do incredibly well.
These songs radiate a welcoming, instantly homelike, eventually intimate, warmth. The emotions, deep as they are, are offered in a conversational tone by Mare (pronounced “Mary”) Wakefield. The truths she shares are matched by her honesty and dignity of delivery. And what a joy to hear the well chosen, perfectly played instrumentation that frames the relaxed duo’s musical storytelling.
Mare Wakefield & Nomad’s melodic poetry will be echoing down the road over the next month or so. I can think of no better way to warm your soul during this winter…
