Review: Amy & Rachel Beck – Run (Independent)

Run (2014) CoverHailing from Prince Edward Island, the second effort from siblings Amy & Rachel Beck is firmly rooted in the realm of folk music that our little corner of the world seems to know so well. Produced by fellow Islander Tim Chaisson, he elicits some lively performances from the duo, demonstrating a thorough understanding of what makes for a memorable song. His accompanying vocals on “From Where You Are” merely serve to make an already good thing better while the siblings’ effortless, natural harmonies on “Make You Happy,” “City Lights” and “Run” serve to highlight the strong musical bond between the two.
