From a review by Katherine O'Brien: “Nan Wicker returns with a beautifully produced new album, ‘When You Sing’, a thoughtfully curated and artfully arranged collection of joyful songs for listeners of all faiths.
“Love songs richly layered with multiple meanings, they speak with emotional clarity of journeys undertaken on the spiritual path and of the ecstasy of finding the Unnamed Beloved waiting at journey’s end. The arrangements are uncluttered and sophisticated with facile transitions from jazz to folk to even a hint of country. Nan’s voice has never been stronger as she moves from the direct exuberance of ‘When You Sing’ to the breathy intimacy of a secret whispered into a lover’s ear in ‘What Lies Between Us.’ The album features polished performances by excellent instrumentalists and delivers a consistently illuminating and uplifting message.”
