From the album "Through a Webbed Window" (2009)

reached  # 1 on  KIAC Big 25   


The beautiful cello line on this track was written by our pianist, Christian Kempe.

Luisa was a very special seven-year-old who could run like the wind...

Seems like it happened in once-upon-a-time
I told a ludicrous fairy tale
To a child called Luisa
Sweet as her name

Strange combination of dark and of light
Wise for her seven years’ living
This child called Luisa
Flower in spring

Run baby run
You can race with the angels and win it
Sorrow you’ve known carved a well
That you now fill with joy
Your daddy loves you
Forgive him his pride
And think of me sometimes
I’ll be by your side if you need me

Tried not to get too close, knew I could lose
More than the man who had healed me
But she once called me mother
As she lay down to sleep

Run baby run
You can race with the angels and win it
Sorrow you’ve known carved a well
That you now fill with joy
Your daddy loves you
Forgive him his pride
And think of me sometimes
I’ll be by your side if you need me

Music with meaning
...Simply beautiful, my kind of song!!


What the Folk!
Maeve and her song Luisa is certainly a sweet elegant tune. It is very reflective, somewhat hopeful yet at times it has a longing and to it and Maeve captures the essence of what she intended, as it is a very moving composition. A lyrical piano part of broken chords is effectively textured into the theme, a nice light guitar accompaniment is just slightly noticeable supporting the song and a lovely cello, viola ? is evident in a complimentary way to offer up the support for Maeve vocals. the use of the stringed instrument was almost as if another singer was there Maeve's singing was light,airy and the vocals she provided had a nice tonal color as well as she captured the quality of feeling and emotions in the song. A mellow tune done with loving care...bryon


Sandman's Songbirds
I for one am very happy that Maeve made peace with her musical Irish roots and turned out this gem for all of us to hear. What a beautiful voice! Rock on Maeve!


THE SAD SONGS
I'm an Irish singer-songwriter and self-confessed late-developer, now living in Freiburg, Germany. After years of hiding behind bands, wishing I was Janis Joplin and trying very hard not to be so damned nice, I finally made peace with my voice and my undeniably suburban Irish musical roots. The result was Relative Calm - and now Through A Webbed Window

Wonderful!


The Metro Underground
Down-tempo bliss! Maeve Kelly deserves an audience with equal parts soul, pop, folk. Like the American legend Eva Cassidy, Maeve has one gem of a voice!
