Folk & Country: Year in Review 2010
2. Basia Bulat Heart Of My Own (Secret City)
Basia Bulat may have augmented the stable, old-soul emotion of her 2007 folk-pop debut with a rumbling, rollicking edge on Heart of My Own, but her gracious profundity remains. Heart-filled musings on home, such as the stellar "Gold Rush," almost exude the raw force of the great Canadian outdoors, a big inspiration for this record. The arresting vocal and autoharp simplicity of "The Shore" demonstrates the fundamental talent at work, one so transcendent that it hints at a timeless soulfulness that Bulat is still at the outset of channelling.
