Dying Star CD review - Dying Star
There is a certain joy that comes from listening to a debut album and discovering, track by track, the arrival of a bright new talent. It's not a wet-behind-the-ears singer with a batch of anonymous songs, hoping to get radio airplay. Rather, it's someone with an already-established vision and a clear voice.
