ESTHER O'CONNOR Right Here (2006)

Esther O'Connor

The biggest single surprise here is that Esther is Scottish. Listening to what turns out to be her third album before I had done any research, I was convinced this was from across the pond. It's convincing and in the vein of an offering from Jewel or Sheryl Crow.

Actually she's been around since 2000, having signed a major deal with EMI, although her major success has been north of the border and at festivals (T in the Park, V festival).

But after a failure to hit pay dirt, she released an independently produced album in 2003 that received some rave reviews and comparisons to Stevie Nicks.

'Right Here' sees her keeping on the right track with a varied album that covers all the bases from pop to country to rock and folk.

It's an excellent effort that reminds of Sheryl Crow's debut album in its diversity. With her sweet vocals, excellent songs and delivery it can only be a matter of time before success comes knocking.
