'single step' is the debut album from san diego singer/songwriter emily ann laliotis. the album title is inspired by a quote from taoist philosopher lao tzu, 'a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step'. that seems like an appropriate head space from which to approach one's initial foray into songwriting and recording.
it's a solid introduction. emily relies on her voice and guitar playing skills, employing only minimal, tasteful touches of contemporary folk production, as well as some beautiful harmonies by her sisters (i am a huge sucker for siblings doing harmonies!), to put flesh on the bones of her carefully written folk ballads.
