Exquisitely layered and emotive, Good Will Rise, the four song EP from Hamilton singer/songwriter, Amber Edgar, will stir the senses. Lyrically and musically, the recording's very well-crafted and inspiring.
With an almost cinematic flair, each alt-folk/pop tune paints a mental picture of mourning, loss and redemption. Though sometimes dark, Amber manages to inject the songs with a bit hope and meaning as well.
Helping along the way are Adam Bentley and Anna Jarvis (formerly of The Rest), Bill Majoros of Foreign Films, Troy Dowding, Karijn DeJong, Kori Pop, and Jordon Mitchell. They make amazing contributions to the stunning density and artistry of the sound.
The EP is available through her Bandcamp page.

Some recordings escape our radar, so occasionally we'll be catching up with some mini-reviews!
Amber released the Honey and Sorrow single in 2013. Both the main song and the "B-Side" Troubles, are infectious numbers featuring her wonderful lyrics. It's available via Bandcamp.
