It’s Thursday night in Edinburgh and I’m heading over to The Voodoo Rooms to see a gig and write a review. Now I’m not sure about this one, my expectations are very high! This is a type/genre of music that I’m not sure is quite as good live as it is played through a top end hi-fi, will I be disappointed … certainly not!
 

There are times when I think I am lost in music. Caught in a trap, even. Then there are times when I think I might be tripping over musical clichés and times when I wonder how anybody gets through life, or a gig at least, without alcohol. So it was that my now vulnerable consciousness encountered the many wonders of Louise Rutkowski.
 

Having made an impact originally in the 1980s as a vocalist with Sunset Gun, and then with 4AD stalwarts, This Mortal Coil, Louise disappeared from the music scene, but has spent almost seven years creating her solo debut. At the age of 49, she steps into the spotlight with a gorgeous and simple album that highlights her powerful voice, thanks to considerate arrangements by collaborator and co-composer Irvin Duguid.

This debut solo album from Glasgow-based chanteuse Louise Rutkowski has been a long time coming. Rutkowski fronted soul pop band Sunset Gun in the 1980s, was a guest vocalist for 4AD supergroup This Mortal Coil and Ivo Watts-Russell's follow-up project The Hope Blister, and collaborated with composer Craig Armstrong in the 1990s as The Kindness of Strangers.
