|Soft As Chalk|
|So, so long ago, and so far away When time was just a line That you fed me when you wanted to stay We'd talk as soft as chalk Till morning came, Pale...||See the rest of the song lyrics|
Have One On Me is so enrapturing, so imaginative and so delicate, that it feels safe to say that in five or ten years time, you’ll go back to it and discover brand new things--whether they be the meaning of a song you’d never fathomed before or a simple amuse-bouche of a beautifully constructed oboe phrase.
Try to label what Newsom does in a sentence or two, and you just tie yourself in knots. Have One On Me will do little to change all that, and so the only clear point of reference is her own previous work. Beyond that, though, it’s enough to say that it’s her, and if you loved "Ys" as much as this writer did, you’re probably going to love Have One On Me also.

But Joanna madeIt's obviously an ambitious recording: three discs of a singer known by her quirky voice and usually accompanied by a harp... But Joanna made it pixie-way beautiful. A step ahead from her previous work, now she has pianos, trumpets and the old harp, and her voice tone matured enough to prove herself to the critics. And now, her songwriting is in a higher level than in 'Ys', making her the most complete folk singer of our generation.… Expand
RodrigoAApr 8, 2010Fantastic. Joanna Newson is one of the greatest voices I have ever heard. Truly amazing. After "Ys" it was difficult to do better but she managed it.
