'Selections from The Lovely Days' features the first two singles from Helen's debut full album, as well as a brand new live track.
“'Heart Beats' is a minimalist folk tune, yet haunting and hypnotic from the chilling sound of McCreary’s voice and the slow strikes of the cello... music has found itself a new gem." - The Revue
About the album:
In her debut full album, Brooklyn-based singer songwriter Helen McCreary tells stories of love, fear, and all the things you leave behind. Written while Helen was working as an archaeologist in Christchurch, NZ, it is the culmination of almost two years of work and growth. Preorder it on Bandcamp or iTunes!
