Holly finally went back into the studio for the first time in several years. She had so much new material, she went ahead and recorded twice as many songs as would fit on one CD, figuring she'd save half of them for a future release.
Fortunately for us, the results turned out so well that she decided not to wait - instead gifting the universe with a brand-new 2-CD set for 2012.
These 28 songs represent Holly's distinctive songwriting, as well as material written or sung by artists such as Bernice Reagon, Irving Berlin, Jacques Brel, and Ferron. She is accompanied on the journey by 22 outstanding musicians and vocalists, each contributing to the variety of sounds and styles.
Showcasing the wide expanse of Holly's stylistic virtuosity and her musical interests - love songs, standards, timely reflections on our world ... all with conscience, some with humor, all in her unique, strong voice - this reflective, tender, passionate, joyful, thoughtful collection of songs is sure to warm you heart and stir your soul.
