Laura Love was just another bass player on the Seattle grunge scene until a critic chastised her for wasting her talents in an "annoyingly pointless" band called Boom Boom . Smacked with a midlife crisis before her time, she began writing songs which abandoned grunge altogether in favor of a uniquely eclectic mix of influences from around the world. So far-flung are these influences, in fact, that the all-American girl signed her first record contract with a world music label, Putumayo. The Collection is an excellent introduction to Love's distinctive style, which she calls "Afro-Celtic. That's as good a description as any, but it fails to capture the breadth of her eclecticism. Her funky bass-plucking draws on soul and R&B, but her raw-but-rangy vocals seem most influenced by the blues and bluegrass.
