Lizzy Farrall – All I Said Was Never Heard Review

All I Said Was Never Heard is the debut EP from UK-born singer-songwriter Lizzy Farrall. It’s a light and airy sounding piece, with a nice personal touch to the performance, and the emotiveness to the EP as a whole is fantastic.

Stylistically, this EP is not the most complex listen out there but it doesn’t need to be. All I Said Was Never Heard is raw and to the point, and it’s a quietly beautiful little piece. Very gently delivered for the most part, you can’t help but want to take a step back in order to fully appreciate the music, and the vocals are stunning – they’re powerful, but not overwhelming, with each line as succinct and passionately delivered as the last.

Admittedly there isn’t much variety to be found on All I Said Was Never Heard. Although all five tracks are good, they don’t have their own identity as all seem to sound fairly similar to one another. They don’t necessarily blend into one another but after several listens, I still can’t quite tell the tracks apart without consulting their names as they’re just not tremendously distinct from each other.

As a whole, this EP is a great starting point for Farrall. There’s a lot of untapped potential nestled within this soft and gentle music, and it’s a pleasure to listen to. Watch this space – she could certainly go far in the industry.
