Bread and Flowers by Victoria Woodworth

Victoria Woodworth belongs to a rare breed: the singer-songwriter who excels in both fields. Woodworth’s songs are fuelled by raw emotion, her lyrics capturing the essence and complexity of human relationships. Her style is more Americana than Nashville, more contemporary folk than country, and owes a great deal to classic folk rock singer-songwriters like Laura Nyro and Paul Simon.

Her latest release, Bread and Flowers, contains 12 versatile tracks, each capturing a different slice of life. Heartfelt lyrics and evocative vocals guide the listener through various emotional twists and turns, from pathos to irony, and everywhere in between. Occasionally her vocals show the influence of other artists; 'Baby Doll Shoe' is reminiscent of Emmylou Harris, while 'Forty Five' carries hints of the legendary Patsy Cline. But make no mistake, Woodworth is no mimic; she has learned from the best and over time assimilated what she liked into her own unique and powerful style.

Accompaniment throughout is pleasingly sparse, complementing the mood of each song. Favourite tracks include 'Blowtorch', 'Bread and Flowers', 'Tears in a Bottle', and the hauntingly beautiful 'Come Inside'.
