Helena Hallberg’s Debut Album Is A Jazz, Folk, Pop Dream

by Michael Levine

Helena Hallberg’s debut album, Epithet, seamlessly combines jazz, folk, and pop sounds with refreshing results. There’s an eclectic mix of upbeat numbers (“The Day I Found the Moon,” “Your Side of the Pillow”), ballads (“Heaven and Hell,” “Mastermind”) and a great dance song (“Surprisingly Disco”) that goes straight to your feet with its way-cool groove. Hallberg’s vocal range is reminiscent of early Emmylou Harris and Joni Mitchell. Her writing is both thought-provoking and witty, with lyrics that focus on empowering oneself and others. Helena Hallberg has masterfully combined all these elements to create a stunning first album.
