Relaxing, melodic, and creative, classic Dar Willi

on 3/3/2003

I came home from work today with a bad headache, and put on this cd for the first time. The soft, deep sound of Dar's voice was just what I needed to relax. Soothing and romantic, it would be a great background for an evening alone with someone you love.

Dar hits new heights

on 7/1/2003

Dar takes it up another level with "Beauty"-- this classic is one of the top 10 theme albums, all time. Dar reminds one of a young Joni Mitchell in her energy and creativity. Quality acoustic numbers can be heard once again here with Dar's unique, touching, sometimes breaking voice, but the breakthrough is the fuller sound and building rhythm on such songs as "Mercy of the Fallen" and "The World's Not Falling Apart." I only hope that fame and fortune will not sidetrack Dar from her art as "Beauty" delivers the little-known Dar to commercial success.

Product Overview

On her latest album, The Beauty of The Rain, Dar Williams takes another step forward, showcasing a new, fuller sound, as well as her mastery at mapping out the emotional terrain of people whose lives are in transition. Recorded in a studio in NYC's Chelsea neighborhood, The Beauty of the Rain was produced by Steuart Lerman and Rob Hyman, and features guest appearances by a remarkable array of talent: Alison Krauss on vocals, Bela Fleck on banjo, John Popper manning the harmonica and backup vocals, Stefan Lessard (of Dave Matthews Band) on bass, John Medeski on keyboards, Chris Botti on trumpet, Cliff Eberhardt on vocals and Michael Kang (String Cheese Incident) on fiddle. The idea to bring in so many illustrious guests came from Dar, who decided to make her song arrangements richer and denser this time around. "It can be a little lonely sometimes being a girl with a guitar," she says. "I wanted to reach out into the world and see what else was going on."
