The uniform elegance of Rose Melberg’s past work with Tiger Trap and The Softies is present on her new solo venture Homemade Ship . This album transcends her work with her previous groups – never has her voice sounded so full and refined as it does here. Her songs belong to her voice. Always tender and hushed, Homemade Ship is enchanting; its stark stillness is as hauntingly playful and familiar as the first days of fall. Melberg has recorded two solo albums since The Softies last album was released in 2000. In the past nine years she has moved to British Columbia and started a family. This batch of songs was recorded in the winter time in Vancouver. A small masterpiece, Melberg uses just a guitar and vocals on Homemade Ship (with occasional harmony vocal and piano work provided by Larissa Loyva of The Choir Practice and P:ano), offering helpful and insightfully delicate lyrics to perfectly ease out of sorrow and into contentment. At the forefront, her voice holds a warmth and generosity that adds strength and hopefulness to her aching lyrics. Set a table for two. "Rose Melberg has a perfectly tuned ear for romantic, rainy day tunes." Venus / "A songwriter of simple grace with a real ability to cut through the haze of everyday life and hit you where it counts, gently but with lasting effects." All Music
