Lynne Taylor Donovan – Sugar Lake
Effortlessly blending a strong rock n roll feel with classic country tones, Lynne Taylor Donovan’s ‘Sugar Lake’ is sassy and swaying, laced with moments of melancholy.
Sometimes a track has the ability to grab attention no matter what genre you might be particularly drawn to, and ‘Sugar Lake’ somehow manages to do just that. From its explosive opening bars, the track is positively bristling with raw energy, and unfolds in unexpected ways as it progresses. The mid point breakdown becomes a beautiful and surprising moment which allows Donovan’s voice to really shine as she shows real dexterity and character. In some ways the track is a bit like those times when you meet someone for the first time and hit it off right away. It’s not always easy to pinpoint what the reasons are, but for some reason you just seem to be on the same page, and it doesn’t feel like you have to try too hard to get that person to really know who you are. In some ways, Lynne Taylor Donovan’s music is like that – sure of itself but open to new ideas, and more than happy to make a few more friends along the way.
