On her tenth release, Angels in Disguise, Celtic harpist Kim Robertson adds a new dimension to her music: The evocative sounds of her voice, previously heard only in concert.
Along with her own arrangements of Irish, Scottish, and Japanese instrumentals, Kim has included five elegant original songs and two scottish folk songs that capture the haunting quality of her vocals. The album opens with Doucement, one of two selections with French lyrics inspired by her years of study in France. These pieces, along with Hello My Friend, speak eloquently of timeless love, while selections like Contemplate and Angels in Disguise reflect on the power of imagination to transcend limitation.
The dreamy production quality of the album adds to the magic and clarity of Kim's expressive vocals. Her crystalline harp melodies are further enhanced by warm, ethereal instrumental arrangements featuring violin, hammered dulcimer, guitar and percussion. After listening to this celestial yet sensuous music, you may wonder if Kim herself is an angel in disguise.
