Review: 'POMEROY, KEN'

-  Label: 'Horton Records'
-  Genre: 'Alt/Country' -  Release Date: '2nd November 2018'-  Catalogue No: 'CD049'

Our Rating:
This female Oklahoma singer/songwriter began singing, writing songs, and playing the Baritone ukulele at the age of 9. When she reached 10 she began playing guitar.

She has now reached the grand age of 16 and has already played the Grande Ole Opry and a solo set at the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival. It seems only appropriate therefore that the final song on her second EP release should be entitled Living The Dream.

This 7-trask disc, initially recorded on cassette, comprises simple, unadorned and plugged Americana consisting mainly of slow, sad songs about love. Her experience in this field may be limited but there's a disarming maturity to her music and a convincing lilt to her voice.

The one departure, and the standout track, is The Sidewalk Song which takes a surprisingly positive stance on the experience of homelessness.

Clearly this is a young woman with talent to spare and barring disaster it would appear that the only way is up.
