All 8 tracks contain lyri- cal imagery and stellar gui- tar-playing by Hammer. The catchy chorus in, “Half A Mile Away” feels familiar as an old classic; however, in re- ality this is off of Hammer’s most recent release. “In This Dark Your Love Shines” has an epic quality like a rock an- them in the making. “It’s more than the dark that clouds the sky tonight. Oh, we wait so long for changes, oh we wait so long,” croons Hammer. “This Amazing Now” featur- ing horns reminiscent of the

band Chicago. The CD has an all-female horn section on that track; including Jane Fos- sgreen, Sarah Moore and Ella Steinberg. Fans will recognize long-
