Akeel and David is a powerful narrative track that has the rich vocals of Ellen Wade sparkle above a solid backing instrumentation. The martial drumming and emotive guitar work heard during this track will stick with listeners long after the composition closes up shop.
She Moved Through the Fair is impressive if not only for the vocal range of Wade. While there is a brooding, intense instrumentation playing at the periphery during this track, listeners’ attentions will be drawn to Ellen’s tremendous ability. The gulf between these two compositions could not be greater, but the skillful hand of Wade is enough to make these singles work together.
