Song Up In Her Head
[Rating: 3.5 STARS]
Fresh out of high school, Jarosz is young enough that her influences still sit close to the surface on her debut album; you can hear shades of Nickel Creek, Abigail Washburn and Gillian Welch. The remarkable thing is that Jarosz can already do-in her own way-what each of them do. She’s mastered guitar, mandolin and clawhammer banjo; she sings in pleasing, even tones, and she’s written a clutch of songs as formidable as they are fetching.
