As music becomes increasingly technological, the old-fashioned, soulful sound of Sadie Jemmett stands out as a refreshing alternative. Jemmett’s debut solo album, with its roots deeply entrenched in folk, shows off her beautifully honest style and skills on guitar, piano and dulcimer to great effect. Best tracks include the confessional Making Sense and the chilled tones of So I Begin. The Blacksmith’s Girl showcases her talented ability to appeal to the heart of anyone who has ever been in love.

Rating: 8/10
