Review Text Following her stunning full-length debut, 'Distance and Miles,' Mikki Brisk now releases 'Cowgirl Christmas/Joey,' a holiday CD with 2 striking and very different seasonal songs. 'Cowgirl Christmas' is a modern Christmas ballad with a classic country sound. A romantic traveler's tale, filled with highway longing for the love and comforts of home and hearth. With a beautiful, haunting vocal evoking the best of k.d. lang, married to a loping shuffle beat, a fresh Americana addition to the holiday song canon. 'Joey' is a seasonal fable about the father of the most famous baby in history, and husband to the miracle mother. 'Such a small part of this big story,' his simple life honors the quiet role of supportive fathers everywhere. Stripped-down but immensely powerful, this song will haunt you with it's honestly-rendered telling. 'Mikki's music cooks. Start with a base stock of country and simmer with a dollop of folk for flavor. Chop up some off-Nashville alt-country and driving roots-rock. Spice with a dash of bayou, Southwest, and horns-tinged bluesy soul. Set oven to 'confessional female empowerment' and roast. Serve hot.'
