Christy Scott is a young, independent folk artist with her first album being Amaranthine. The album is an honest look at life through her eyes with lyrics strong in both a folk undertone and with nods to her Scottish heritage.
The true highlight of the entire set is Scott's vocals. Her voice is mature and full of feeling. The lyrics comes from a place of sadness but also learning. You can hear the struggle between love and life lessons we all learn as we age.
“Hearts Collide” starts the journey of lost love for the album. While the subject seems to be expected, the interesting Scottish undertones set the album apart. “Another Song About Another” is simply breathtaking. I enjoyed the pure feeling in the song and also the supporting musical dramatics. It all melted together to create something much more than just a song.
The music tells an interesting story and seems to have a special element that would make it great for the theater or a movie perhaps. The subject and vocals produce enough feelings that I can almost see how this song would play out on a stage. The fire is there to support something far beyond a simple track.
“Flaws to Uncover” was the most upbeat of the collection. It seemed to be that point where lost love doesn't quite hurt anymore, and it was hopeful beyond the current state. The musical arrangement of this song played a wonderful tribute to the artist’s heritage.
This album was interesting and almost magical. I enjoyed getting to know the artist via her creativity and heartfelt lyrics. I look forward to hearing and perhaps seeing more from this artist.
