The Other Side of Time

The Other Side of Time

by Mary Fahl


12 New & Used Starting at $1.99


It takes a special voice to put across special songs, and Mary Fahl, a former member of the October Project, comes up strong as both a unique singer and composer. Her first full-length album (an EP, Lenses of Contact, was relased in 2000), The Other Side of Time is as concerned with mood and atmosphere as it is with luscious melody and forthright vocalizing. Fahl draws on classical and world music sources, as well as thinking-man’s folk-pop, to sculpt a haunting sonic landscape shimmering with evocative dimensions; her full-bodied voice powerfully endows each song with a palpable strength that evokes her emotional commitment to the material. If her sound recalls that of Enya’s at times, Fahl’s approach has its own distinct personality. Luckily, her sympathetic collaborators -- including fiddler Mark O’Connor, guitarist Oren Bloedow, and Tony Gardiner (bassist for Bob Dylan) -- are as in step with Fahl’s intentions as support players can be. In all, a dazzling overture for an artist whose bright future beckons.

This album is exquisite...I have two copies. One for my car and one for home. I am anxiously awaiting new material from Mary. She has an amazing voice.

I absolutely love this album. I knew right away that she had been the lead singer in the October Project. She has a strong unique voice and I predict she will have much success.
