5/20/2004 - Beth Amsel (of Voices on a Verge)


Kindling, the new album from Beth Amsel, is a musical ride through love and loss, want and desire, grief and change as seen from the driver's seat of a runaway car. Produced and engineered by Dave Chalfant (Erin McKeown, Ben Demerath, The Nields), the multi-instrumentalist and bass player from folk rock favorite The Nields, Kindling smolders with stellar work from Beth, Chalfant, and a host of New England's greatest players (Kevin Barry, Jim Henry, Lorne Entress, Ben Demerath, Katryna Nields, Gideon Freudmann, and Dave Hower). From the R&B What You Can Never Have to the sweet waltz Simple, This Farewell, to the country tinged Lonely Rider, Kindling is poised to 'establish Beth as one of the great folk voices working today.'
