Sarah McQuaid:
I Won’t Go Home ’Til Morning (SMQCD002)

In this follow-up to her quietly sublime debut, McQuaid mines her American folk background for inspiration. Subtlety and poise rank among the hallmarks – a quiet, elegant reading of Bobbie Gentry’s Ode To Billie Joe, the subdued authority of Only An Emotion. An album that further defines McQuaid as an artist of restraint and subtlety.
