Odessa Chen with the Invisible Stories Ensemble
The Act of Loving You
Street: 05.01
Odessa Chen = Joanna Newsom + Owen Pallet
In collaboration with Max Stoffregen, Odessa Chen shines on The Act of Loving You with a powerful voice paired with classical musicians. While it comes across like a Broadway soundtrack, the sincerity of the lyrics with the intoxicating quality of Chens’ voice makes the album approachable by even those who are not so theatrically inclined. I look forward to hearing more releases by her, with the hope that she’ll use a theme other than the desire of a lover in the future. –Brinley Froelich
