The Tunnel and the Clearing by Colleen

A beautiful, personal response to life's tough deal

Ninth album The Tunnel and the Clearing from French multi-instrumentalist Cécile Schott is her personal response to life's lemons (serious illness diagnosis, relationship break-up, pandemic). The result is alluring, luxurious and moreish. Like a sensuous invitation, the whispery vocals encourage investigation and audial reciprocation, while the melodies and gentle rhythms encroach on cosmic.
