I sat down at my computer this morning to check my email before heading out to work, and noticed that I had messages from both of my parents. They had both sent me a link to the same article from the Oregonian, so despite my rush to get out the door, I took a look at the page they sent.
It was the review of my sister’s new cd, “Despite the Crushing Weight of Gravity” and it’s a pretty terrific review.
Marty Hughley says,
Her voice is clear and sweet, recalling at times Suzanne Vega or Dirty Martini’s McKinley, and even — when she opts for a slip-and-slide sort of phrasing popular with young female folkies these days — Ani DiFranco.
I may be the proudest big sister you’ll find these days. Raina’s talent and her ability to translate that talent into a tangible piece of art, awes and amazes me. She is driven and passionate and I admire those traits in her greatly. Plus, I just love her buckets and am filled with joy to see her succeed.
