Amazing Grace Review

by Marcy Donelson

Sharing its title with the name of the recording studio he operates with frequent collaborator Jay Malhotra, Sam Duckworth's second album (under his own name), the low-key, introspective Amazing Grace, was partly influenced by the toll taken by a serious illness involving a parasite he contracted during travel. Malhotra contributes significantly to the record, and despite its unconvoluted, mostly acoustic, singer/songwriter quality, other guests include Kate Nash, Gomez, Yourcodenameis:milo, the King Blues, Sweet Billy Pilgrim, and Megan Washington, and many, many more. Preceded by the sophistipop-style single "Only a Fool," Amazing Grace was his first release after signing with Alcopop!.
