Autumn, Emilie - Enchant

Year of Release: 2002
Label: Traitor Records
Catalog Number: n/a
Format: CD
Total Time: 00:00:00

Emilie Autumn will Enchant you with her Martha Davis (The Motels) intonations and Stevie Nicks like vocal charms, not mention the sensual "stare of the vixen" she gives on the cover of her CD. She is smooth and polished enough to hit all the high notes while playing a multitude of instruments, which is a credit to her and the diverse array of talents that she presents. The violin is her specialty yet she excels in every other area she decides to travel musically.

This 24-year singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist has a stunning array of tools at her disposal, and she reaches down and uses everything she has got on this album. She has the influence to demand your attention, and I mean now. I have not one ounce of uncertainty that the right ears will be picking up on her many talents really soon, although I am not so certain she will jump at any offers, even those that sound good. She has experience beyond her years regarding deals gone sour, so her fiercely independent attitude comes embedded in her music. This atmosphere and energy is prevalent, particularly in anti-male chauvinist songs like "Chambermaid." Lyrically this album is as authoritative as it is musically. Her words cut and bite with purpose, she is a poignant woman on a mission making her feelings known to all within earshot.

Beyond great music that will captivate you, a woman like Emilie Autumn symbolizes the independent spirit in every way and she will most certainly be an inspiration to woman and men artists alike. Her work in totality is a benchmark all others can follow to success without having a label to back them.
