Street Faerie opens as much of the alternative music of the mid to late 90s – with revolution. “Revolution Sunshine” isn’t original, but it’s sincere. And what can you do but be swept up in the warmth of her voice and her free spirit? Cree allows us to take a step into the pool first without falling too deeply. Then she pushes us until we are forced to collect the air between our fingers and swim in her vocal ecstasy.
Cree’s lilting lullaby is further propelled with the help of Lenny Kravitz, a man with the gift of grit and a low tolerance for pretence. “Miss Moon”  is an unabashed look into the woman’s body, how it opens, cleaves, and allows room for another inside. However, it’s also a body that bleeds and through a monthly bout of death there is the prospect of life.
Then Cree becomes one with her earthy essence. The album further explores humanity in its most bare naked and unafraid pose – completely free of the paint that covers our must sinister parts. “Still Heart”  is a minimalistic soundscape that leaves room for her gruff voice and poetic lyricism.
