My Favorite Distraction
Label: JUST // Vocal //
Despite looking a bit like Diana Krall and represented by the Justin Time Jazz label, Coral Egan is much more than just another piano tickling crooner.
My Favourite Distraction reveals its jazz roots, but this collection of spiritual anthems branches in many directions. It's layered in elegant productions, marrying organic with electronic sounds and marked by Egan's deep, captivating voice.
Highlights include the Suzanne Vega-ish title track and Breathe, a stunning piece laden with strings and gorgeous chord changes in an odd time signature. There are ample hints of what a remarkable artist this Montreal singer could be if she really cut loose creatively.
