Alyson Murray – Come to Me Review
By Bea Willis
Alyson Murray is a rising star pop singer who originally hails from Australia though she spends time commuting to New York to collaborate with top-shelf NY musicians. On her latest outing “Come To Me,” Murray has chosen an all-female line up to best highlight the feminine qualities of her music. The lineup includes pianist Kelly Green, guitarist Alicyn Yaffee, bassist Michelle Osbourne and drummer Lucianna Padmore. Once again, Murray has outdone herself with a sunny, yet bodacious soulful single.
Murray wrote “Come to Me” after relocating to New York, the track personifies Murray’s journey as a musician. She explains, “the emotions tied to waiting patiently for things to work out and trying to trust it’ll come.” Murray has constructed the tune as a feel-good track with all the trimmings of super-pop, including a gospel-inspired “sing-along” outro.
“Come to Me,” personifies all the best qualities of Murray, only matched by her crystalline upper register or by her low soulful tones and punctuated prowess. Murray has all the qualities that are needed to pull off a pop-soul tune. The supple buoyancy of her voice elongates in all the right places and turns on a dime to hit the minutia of the climatic gospel reverence. As heard on her previous release Breathe, Alyson has a way of crafting lasting melodies, and “Come to Me” is no exception.
