Carmichael has the kind of voice that hits you just at the right moment, and is the kind of writer who knows when to place those moments in a song. Turquoise Blue, about a six-year-old boy with leukemia, has a chorus with a beautiful vocal and harmony, as she sings "Little trooper, little soldier." A Girl Said Yes, about a couple who's first date was initiated by the man writing a letter, has another killer chorus: "It's all because a boy wrote a letter/It's all because a girl said yes."
Closing cut Fire In The Flame is one from her own life, about her father's Alzheimer's, and what thoughts he may have lived with at the beginning: "Will you still love me if I don't know your name?" Bring an extra Kleenex if you're checking out any of the duo's upcoming shows, including these ones:
