"Carrick's voice is reminiscent of great torch singers from the past...elegant and molten - and all the more refreshing for its lyrical clarity in an age when diction in singing doesn’t always seem to be a priority. It takes a singer with Carrick’s vision and a passion for story-telling to weave songs like this into compelling and unexpected combinations."
