Brooklyn singer/songwriter Kelli Scarr released her debut album, Piece, in July of 2010. The album is a collection of ten highly personal notes and musings in song. Scarr goes straight for the heart of the moment each time rather than giving much in the way of background. Scarr’s rambling compositional style is low key and appealing, but listening to Piece is like eavesdropping on her personal thoughts without a frame of reference. Unless you’re already familiar with the situations Scarr describes you may be lost to follow her line of thought. Highlights include the low key “Anything”, mixing a simple, pretty vocal line with great harmonies, the dreamy and ethereal “Salt To The Sea” and the heart-rending plea of “Come Back To Me”.
