When Carol Welsman sings a song, once is never enough

Whenever I listen to Carol Welsman I feel like saying, “I wanna hear that again.” One more time is a whole new kind of not enough.

She sings the wholeness of a song. She sings the whole song through. There’s no dead spot, no place where the energy or light drops. If you listen you can almost let things go out of focus a little as she takes over and guides you through the adventures of a song’s story. Each phrase drops you gently into the next.

Imagine walking freely without a care, stepping off an edge only to have more for your underfoot appear just ahead of your coming footfall as you barely even drift down from the last underfooting. Caught lightly at every very next step.

One more time Carol Welsman: I wanna hear that again.
