Alice Brightsky-Box of Me

Alice Brightsky CD Cover

Box of Me is the new CD from Alice Brightsky out of Westchester NY.  Alice stepped away from the music world in 2009 “tired of the music biz grind and overwhelmed by creative and logistical roadblocks to completing her solo debut, quietly walked away from a promising career.”  She had been working on Box of Me since 2006, but was struggling to complete one of the tracks.  She returned to the project in 2012 with the help of Brandon Wilde and was able to complete “Up Up and Away”, the track she had been struggling on.

Box Of Me was a cathartic album for Alice, its origins were heartache and spiritual fatigue.  “The songwriting for this album was a way of pulling out those emotions that I would otherwise have tucked away,” she says. “I dove into the box to deal with those things and I’m in a good place right now because of it. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.”

“Lover’s Fate” a song that sounds to me about a woman conflicted with a man she loves. The song relies heavily on the vocals of Alice to make it work.  The guitar is just enough, not overpowering, not calling attention away from the vocals and lyrics.  “Enter This World”  has some of the most interesting lyrics I have heard in a while ” I don’t know I am just an embryo, amongst the unborn,  we are waiting in the night, waiting for the light to enter into this world” 

The tracks I have heard from the CD I enjoyed, in the years it took Alice to put the CD together I think it has paid off as I enjoyed this CD.  You can hear tracks from the CD at Alice’s reverbnation page http://www.reverbnation.com/alice
