A wonderful third album from Elizabeth Shepherd – possibly her best yet – taking the stripped down, yet adventurous jazzy soul intimacy of the debut and the deeper, dreamier sound of her Parkdale album, and coming up with a lovely, unique and wholly excellent sound on Heavy Falls The Night! There are some heavier moods at play, but, the production and arrangements have a light touch, leaving plenty of space from Elizabeth's lovely voice to pull you in. Shepherd handles most of the production and all of the arrangements, with one track produced by the DJ Mitsu The Beats, his jazzy dancefloor funk groove well suited for the style! Elizabeth sings and plays keys, with Ross Macintyre and Scott Kemp on bass, Roman Tome on percussion, Colin Kingsmore on drums and percussion, with some guests and guitar on just a couple of tunes. Why
Elisabeth hadn't yet become a superstar by the time of this album's release is a mystery and an injustice! Titles include "What Else", "The Taking", "Heavy Falls The Night", "Numbers", "Seven Bucks". "Pne More Day", "A Song For Dinah Washington", "High", "It's Coming", "On The Insufficiency Of Words" and "Danny's Song".
