Soul Sister

NZ-born Carla Werner’s debut album – Departure – proves a moving experience for New York Daily News reviewer, Jim Farber. “[The songs] have a compellingly confessional quality … Werner sounds most like a female Jeff Buckley, borrowing a few of his melodic lilts and vocal tics. But, ultimately, her sound, and her sorrow, are her own.” Werner gives her own description of her sound in an interview with the New York Post: “I think of it as poetic descriptions of what I’m feeling at the moment […] A rainy day is the perfect environment to listen to it. Melancholy is really part of everyday life, and my music is a product of that.”
