CD Review: Delaney Gibson – The Worst Kind of Way (self released)

worst-kind-of-way-200Singer-songwriter and pianist Gibson shows her multitude of strengths on this new CD though her music will undoubtedly lead to comparisons to Tori Amos and other female singer/songwriters of that ilk, if it’s noticed at all. It’s unfortunate really, as the late ’90’s showed great promise for women musicians thanks to the Lilith Fair and the increased presence of female singer/songwriters on the radio during the tour’s three-year span of influence showed the music business as a whole was ready to get behind the movement. Since then, truly distinctive female artists have once again faded into the background, fading from view so that cookie cutter pop tarts can take the spotlight, even though their talents are meager and all they are known for are the drugs they consume, the men they screw and how many out of wedlock babies they create.
