steveinsocal "...A metaphor for the painful burning sensation that the pepper leaves upon the lips, "Cayenne" is a song of betrayal and heartbreak. Poetic imagery describes the desolate salt plains littered with the bleached white bones, glistening in the unforgiving desert sun serving as the analogy to a love that has long since died..."

    REVIEWS - “Beautiful and coherent, understated and entrancing” (Blurt) - “Pick of the Week: Her work has a lovely, mournful lilt, a sort of Parisian blues. Even those of us who don’t speak French cannot help but be touched by the stark beauty of her phrasing.” (LA Weekly)

    "Enchanting” (Now Toronto) – “Fabulous. Stunning” (Ottawa Xpress) – “Very classy, but straightforward too. Hard to characterise, excellent” (Radio3.CBC) – “Clearly, Dissard isn’t pandering to anyone’s yen for exoticism. Instead, she plumbs for the soul of both traditions and re-invents them both.” (Rochester City Newspaper) – “Striking in its ability to seamlessly fuse styles that seemed previously to be wholly disparate” (Buffalo News) – “Heart-melting debut” (Philadelphia Weekly) - “The effect is magical” (Democrat&Chronicle) – “An enchanting listen” (New Haven Advocate) – “Something like ’70s import movie music. It is delightfully noncommercial and full of risks.” (San Diego Reader) – “Flush with bluesy overtones and a sultriness that doesn’t veer into lounge-cheese territory.” (Ottawa Citizen) – “Seductive French lyrics, brooding ballads and a sultry, alternative jazz/neo-lounge vibe” (Washington Post)
