Album of the Year Award 2012

Album of the Year Award 2012 Winner

Siobhan Owen - Storybook Journey
Storybook Journey should be a staple in any classical crossover collection.  Whilst it's not as technically brilliant as Jennifer Thomas's Illumination and not as lushly orchestrated as Jackie Evancho's Songs From the Silver Screen, it still shines brightest among the 2012 album releases.  The key lies in its prime idea and concept and the perfectly fitting way it is carried out.  It's a wholesome, circular album, inspired by stories and fairytale and it's confidently realised.  Siobhan Owen's pure vocals, atmospheric harp playing and emotive delivery ensure its theme rings true.  The tracks have been carefully selected both thematically and commercially (a very rare feat) and the overall package of the album just puts the cherry on top.  Storybook Journey announces the arrival of Siobhan Owen as a serious artist as well as vocalist.
