“Gentle Journey” is just that, a “gentle journey”, a path drawn of light and senses tingling. In the lead track from the aptly named “Quietudes”, we’re treated to a tender mix of sweet and soft sounds. Her music is like comfort food at its best, utilizing a tapestry of exotic instruments; everything from Spanish guitar to Asian chimes. The clever disc never lets up in our “journey” –- as we move from the rain of night in “Soul Seekers” to the concluding title track, “Quietudes”, which offers a mesmerizing combo of guitars and orchestral strings bright enough to delight even the stingiest of senses.
