barker delivers a rare solo outing that’s packed with personality – a soulful vibrancy grounded in the rich earthiness of deep south roots.

here, she returns to the soul and blues influences that first inspired her to become a songwriter and musician. best known as the writer and performer of the award-winning theme to ‘wallander’,  she recorded this album with an all-star cast of Memphis session players. “there’s a soulful opulence to ‘sister goodbye’, a sultry tribute to sister rosetta tharpe, the deathless country-soul of ‘no 5 hurricane’ reeks with old-school southern charm, and the sweltering funk of ‘sunrise’ and the title track sound like lost muscle shoals gems” 8/10 – uncut.
