Album Review of Heart Song by Elise Lebec

 

Heart Song is the sophomore album from composer and pianist, Elise Lebec, who is a self-taught musician. As a child, Elise would fall asleep at night while listening on headphones to artists like George Winston, Enya, Loreena McKennitt and Andreas Vollenweider, which led her to explore a world of musical composition at a young age. Combining neoclassical and ambient piano with other instruments, Elise is joined by a handful of guest musicians on several of the compositions, which include cellists Elizabeth Vandervennet and David Darling, as well as Jeff Oster on Fugelhorn. A theme of sailing, seaside and the ocean is conveyed throughout by wistful melodies that often create feelings of both serenity and solitude. Contemplative, romantic and beautifully tranquil, Heart Song is evocative of the past, like drawing upon memories that are sacred to the heart, or rediscovering love letters long tucked away or once forgotten only to be reflected upon sometime later.
