from What We Lose In The Fire… (2010)

MY TAKE: Think Maria McKee: R&B infused country with a Soul voice; powerful and a tendancy to overemote. What We Lose In The Fire… is a partnership between indie singer Laura Burhenn, who wanted a band that sounded like Neil Young playing Motown, and Richard Swift, who is becoming a go-to guy if you want a record done right (see Damien Jurado, above). The band name is a tribute to some old Ontario band, with Neil Young, Rick James and Bruce Palmer, whoever they were.
