Jenn Grant - Orchestra for the Moon
By Rachel SandersItís rare that an album is as immediately arresting as Jenn Grantís Orchestra For The Moon, and even rarer that it remains so right through to the last sweet, quivering note. But the Halifax-based Grant has a voice like raw silk and songwriting skills to back it up. Her poignant folk pop is as unique as it is enthralling, combining vintage music box appeal with modern pop sensibilities. And the long list of Canadian musicians that threw their talent behind Grantís solo debut clearly agree. Produced by the Heavy Blinkersí David Christensen and Jason MacIsaac, the record contains contributions from Matt Mays, Jill Barber and Rose Cousins. It even features a duet with the illustrious Ron Sexsmith; "In A Brown House,Ē is an elegant heartbreaker of a tune that would stand out for its melancholy beauty if the album wasnít already jam-packed with loveliness. Itís not all delicious despair though ó the poppy "Donít Worry BabyĒ balances things out ó but when Grantís voice catches in her throat, itís enough to make you vow to be sweeter to your lover.
