Another Road
Artist: Mary Hopkin
Format: CD

More Info:

Another Road is a brand new collection of ten songs written, performed and produced by Mary herself. The songs are inspired, Mary says, by "fragments of personal history," and observations on life in general. Her vocals are intimate yet brushed with her own haunting backing vocals which have become a signature sound. Mary also played keyboards, guitar, percussion and even the accordion inherited from her mother. Although retired from the music business as such, Mary still writes and records at her home studio. She lives quietly away from the public eye but music is still very much a part of her life. Another Road is the twelfth release on Mary Hopkin Music, an independent label founded by her daughter, Jessica Lee Morgan (also a singer songwriter), in 2005. Spill Magazine gave a glowing review: "Another Road is full of personal songs, stories, and political statements. 10 chapters and 10 glimpses into Hopkin's world. All of this is set to excellently-recorded, melodic, beautiful songs. And let us not forget that voice. Hopkin sounds phenomenal."
