I have long been a fan of Tracy Chapman. She has a beautiful, soulful voice that lends itself to the simple but smart and touching songs that she writes.
"Our Bright Future" is her 8th album. She started out 23 years ago in little cafes near Harvard Square, strumming her acoustic guitar and singing her songs to whoever would listen.
Now of course, she can afford to hire expensive backup players and arrangers. But it is still the same Chapman we know and love.
You can listen to these songs for their social message or you can just relax into their warm beauty. Either way a new Chapman cd is always a treat!
And visit her website. It's way cool!
