Review by Kathy Parsons
“This Way” is a piano and vocal piece by Barbara Graff that features the lovely vocals of Chloe Boelter. A sad and lonely story of unrequited love, the words are sung to an indifferent lover who refuses to be swayed by the passion of the singer, frequently causing her deep pain. The instrumental accompaniment is a spare piano part that expresses as much emotion as the words do. I especially like the piano solo near the end of the song. The song is currently available as a single, but Barbara Graff plans to include it on an EP to be released later in 2016. Graff is a classically-trained pianist from a young age and is a graduate of Loyola University in Chicago. She also holds a Masters degree from Northwestern University. Surrounded by music as she grew up, Graff reconnected with her musical roots in 2009 and has been writing and recording music with and without words ever since. “This Way” is available from Amazon, iTunes and CD Baby.
