Jessica Rhaye
Short Stories
(Independent)
Six years is a long time to go between albums, but New Brunswick’s Jessica Rhaye made the most of her musical sabbatical. Short Stories is a marked improvement over Rhaye’s self-titled debut, with a poise and polish that holds its own against the folk-pop heavyweights on the radio today. Producer Ed Woodsworth pulls the best elements out of each song, mixing Rhaye’s lush vocals against an ambitious musical backdrop that includes some of the east coast’s biggest players (Gordie Sampson, J.P. Cormier, Craig Mercer to name a few). If this disc ever finds its way to mainstream radio, Short Stories could be the beginning of a long, illustrious career.
