Singer/songwriter Faith Kleppinger follows up her underground acclaimed debut album Asleep in the Well, with her brand of frail angelic vocals and an outstanding backing band that features Freda Love of Blake Babies fame on drums.
With her sophomore effort, Kleppinger constructs melody-friendly songs concurrent with introspective lyrics that play to the listener’s emotions. Kleppinger strums her acoustic (and sometimes electric) guitar in a haunting way, giving an otherworldly feel when applied with her angelic vocals.
No Galore builds throughout its 10 songs with such tracks at “Pickup, Blue,” Understudy Lines,” and “Ready Made.” Kleppinger is subtle and reels you in with each number. The album comes off as the prefect soundtrack to a sunny spring day with someone special. It is soft, sweet and sensual rolled into 10 tracks by a singer that has her act together on all fronts.
A lot of her great sounds can be attributed, not only to her talent, but the talent of Kenny Childers producing and Mike Bridavsky engineering in Bloomington, IN. But in the end, No Galore is all about Faith.
