Autumn: Velvet Sky

Velvet Sky
Self-Released [2008]

Fire Drills Review:

Autumn Boukadakis has one of those voices that is instantly appealing. On her sophomore record Velvet Sky she not only shows off her vocals but also her piano playing ability backing up her degree in classical piano from the University of Texas in Austin. Along with seven new originals Autumn offers up a killer version of Patty Griffin's "Nobody's Crying" which solidifies her mark on the Americana scene with a strong cross over pop attraction that should be heard.

Key Track: "Trains I Missed"

Band With Similar Fire: Shelby Lynne
