YAEL MEYER Heartbeat EP (Self-released)

I’ve said this before and it bears repeating. I don’t care what you look like or whether you’ve got perfect pitch, if you write songs that are sweet to the ear and touch the hear, you’ve got my vote!

Now, singer-songwriter Yael Meyer is candy both to eye and ear – which is fine in themselves – but what counts to me is her talented songwriting which keeps things sincere and simple. Melodies that ring out, complemented by instrumentation that completes the pleasing package.

I guess you could say that Meyer’s style is mainly soft folk-pop, with equal emphasis on both. This 5-track EP is near perfection – in that I cannot find much wrong with it. Crystal clear vocals & harmonies, pristine acoustic guitars and tight percussions envelope these enjoyable songs. So really, there’s little point in highlighting any particular track cos you’re going to want to listen from start to finish and back to start again. Then repeat.

Female singer-songwriters are dime-a-dozen in 2010 but I appreciate the “old-school” approach that Meyer takes to songcraft. It’s really song first and everything else is built up from that foundation. Yes, folks, I surprised at how much I really liked the Heartbeat EP, but believe me, this one’s a keeper.

  1. Hi there. I discovered your blog when you featured Yael Meyer’s music on here…I currently work for her. I was just reading through some of your posts and really enjoy your work. I’ve just started a new blog myself, so feel free to check it out some time. It’s in its infancy right now, but please visit it if you get the chance.
