From the Ground – Heather Woods Broderick (Part I)

I recently posted quite a bit of music by a brilliant young musician called Peter Broderick who has released some beguiling records on a variety of labels including a particularly gorgeous album to fall asleep to. And wouldn’t you just know it –  the deep and abiding musical talent so inherently clear in his work runs in the family: for now his sister, Heather Woods Broderick has released an album and it is every bit as beguiling and beautiful as Peter’s best work.

Her little opus is called, From the Ground and is available on an Australian label, Preservation Records.  Gorgeously packaged the CD mines the same rich vein as her bro – deceptively simple melodies married to somewhat ethereal vocals and wonderfully evocative soundscapes made up of piano, strings and the gentlest percussion.
