ALICE PEACOCK Who I Am Peacock Music (2006)

Alice Peacock

Following two independently released albums, and originally a third self release, Alice's Who I Am now sees a major label release.

A singer songwriter who delivers her songs in a folk/pop style similar to Shawn Colvin and Mary Chapin-Carpenter, Alice grew up listening to The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Carole King, Carly Simon, and Tom Waits.

On this album she wrote or co-wrote all 14 songs which were cut as she sat at the piano singing and playing along with the band as the tape rolled. There were no rehearsals - it was performances captured 'live' in the studio in about two weeks, at Hollywood's Sound Factory.

The album opens with a stunner - Different From The Rest - a beautiful piano led vocal with Alice's breathy vocals reminiscent of Beautiful South and The Dixie Chicks. But thereafter, the quality dips, the strings overpower and many of the songs are overpowered by the production.

The simpler numbers such as Anyone But Me and Finding My work best. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad album, but it's not great and in the crowded female singer songwriter arena that's simply not enough.
