MerryLeigh Giarra tells a musical story in slice-of-life vignettes. Temperate but hard truths about love and obsession, family, growing up and holding one's own. The songs are a collection of productions that span 40 years. Throaty vocals reveal a woman discovering her strength and her softness, accepting her choices and their consequences; packing up the dreams, sending the illusions off to the virtual thrift store.
MerryLeigh Giarra personifies the full frontal agelessness of rock and roll. It's mellow with an edge, raunch with a PhD.
