Good Things (Jessica Rhaye Music)



New Brunswick's darling Jessica Rhaye could be the next Jewel. With catchy hooks and pop sensibility, her latest album, Good Things, is an ode to what could be. "Shining Star" reminds listeners to look up and take in the night sky, though it's Rhaye who shines on "Rose Coloured Glasses." Fans of Nina Gordon's solo material will swoon for "Wild Horses." A slower, piano rendition of "Holding Out," originally found on her debut Wild Flowers, alludes to a broken affair and what it means to leave someone behind. "Everything For Love" highlights Rhaye's eternal romantic, while closing track "Where's An Angel," is almost holy in its beauty. Rhaye plays September 2 at The Carleton.
