No Small Wonder

For her third album, singer/songwriter Liz Queler surrounds herself with simple, personal arrangements.

For her third album, singer/songwriter Liz Queler surrounds herself with simple, personal arrangements. If she were in the superstar fast lane, this would surely be her "unplugged" set. Working with co-producer, Grammy Award-nominated Seth Farber, Queler (pronounced qwel-ler) confidently traverses a musically diverse landscape—one that encompasses elements of folk, pop, and country. If there's a common thread floating throughout the 12 tracks, it's the artist's fondness for the acoustic guitar. On the spirited "Crescent City," Queler channels Linda Ronstadt, circa the singer's Simple Dreams period. Other highlights include "That's What It Is," "Long Way to Go," and "Streets of London." With No Small Wonder, Queler, who studied jazz piano and guitar at the Berklee College of Music, proves herself to be a singer's singer. Distributed in the U.S. by AllIndie.—MP
