Kaz Simmons - Dandelions

Singer-songwriters seem to be popping up all over the place at the moment, so it is increasingly difficult for any to get noticed. If you can put together a few chords on a guitar and have a half-decent voice it appears to be the done thing to put together an album and release it independently. Kaz Simmons Dandelions is just the latest attempt to offer something a little different; and to her credit the singer manages to impress. Delicate and subtle, her voice has a more interesting edge that gives the disc a deliciously quirky edge and the autobiographical nature of the tracks here give the music a real heart. It's a jazz-pop-folk combination providing ample variety and by running to only eight tracks, Dandelions is of a length that means it never outstays its welcome; in a genre that often gets forgotten as dinner party backing music Simmons succeeds in creating a talking point.
