Wings of Wonder Review

by Zac Johnson

Her first recording in six years, Claudia Schmidt presents a mature voice and songwriting style, tackling subjects such as love and friendship. The songs vary from her breathy rendition of "My One and Only Love" to the rousing "Somebody Else's Restaurant" which feels almost like Christine Lavin covering Arlo Guthrie. A longtime guest on A Prairie Home Companion, Schmidt defies definition, ranging from jazz to folk, soul to blues, all with a distinctly contemporary feel.
