As detailed in the Canadian article in CR71, and my review of his album ‘Food For The Journey’ in CR73, Greg Magirescu is a singer/songwriter of no mean quality. This 2003 release on his wonderfully named Angel Cake Café record label is full of interesting sounds, from contemporary pop on the opener “Made In His Image”, via the piano balladry of “Blessed Are You”, inspired by the Beatitudes, to the almost native American-cum-Celtic vibes of “Glory To God”, with koto, various ethnic drums and whistles in the mix – and that’s just the first three tracks! Greg’s fellow British Columbian Carolyn Arends joins in on “One Heart”, co-authored by Scott Krippayne, and another sensitive ballad that’s ideal for radio airplay, so I hope that you’re getting the message here – this is a very good album indeed, and well worth seeking out.
