reviews The Waiting by Issy & David Emeney with Kate Riaz

That Issy Emeney is a first-rate tunesmith - and a fine player - has
been a well-kept secret for some time (check out Lark Rise). Her
songwriting, too, deserves our admiration. So accomplished is she and
so complete is her empathy with the tradition that she can turn out a
song today that would convince even the most tedious purist that it
had been handed down across the centuries. Song For A Young Man is
exquisitely simple and deeply moving. This album from Issy, David and
Kate is a delight.
