And the gentle production is a key component. Even with strings and full band, these are never allowed to mask the essential ingredients, which are Pool's surprisingly mature and at times gut-wrenching words and the irresistible emotional reach given to them by the seemingly effortless assuredness and clarity in her voice.
The most obvious influences on her work come from a more folkie tradition, where Joni Mitchell and Laura Marling meet. Just occasionally, such as on the sprightly pop song All of the Love, Mitchell's presence is a tad too obvious, but it diminishes little the quality of the song. Indeed, there is finesse in every one of the 12 tracks here, and variety as well.
