Carmel Mikol’s confident strong vocals are all over her new release called Creatures( Sound of Pop/Fontana North ). There are influences of country, blues and acoustic rock. There are times when her singing makes you think of Alanis Morissette or Jan Arden. From Cape Breton, Carmel’s album pays homage to her musical influences. Acoustic guitars, mandolin, banjo and piano are weaved into the tracks seamlessly. One personal track that is deeply moving called ” I Miss the Moon” will leave you satiated.
