CD Review: Lilly Winwood – Time Well Spent
by Ritchie Ritchison for Country Music News International
- Few More Records
- One Big Sky
- Smell of Defeat
- One Step Behind
- You’ll Know Where to Find Me
26 year old Lilly Winwood’s latest release is Americana at it’s finest. Well written songs, sung with passion and soul and a talent developed well beyond her years.
This should come as no surprise considering her father is a rock legend but unlike many legendary artists’ offspring Lilly is not simply a young female version of her dad.
She has her own style and sound and she has her own point of view. She may have gained a great voice from her heritage but the soul she infuses her vocals with are clearly hers and hers alone.
Ms Winwood has done her homework regarding composing and lyrics. Heavily influenced by John Prine, Bonnie Raitt, and many others she has learned from the best and then learned to apply what she has learned. Many good singer/songwriters show promise at an early age but not many are as polished as Ms Winwood.
There are a lot of good tracks on this album One Big Sky, Whiskey and One Step Behind come to mind. As I finished up listening to the last notes of You’ll Know Where to Find Me, I found myself agreeing with whoever titled this album because it was Time Well Spent.
