From the longing ache of Tara Leigh Cobble's "Quiet Love Song" (which she sings a capella) to the gritty edge of "Damage," her voice runs the gamut with precision. Sonically, she brings to mind artists like Sheryl Crow and Natalie Merchant, but she paints her lyrics with the ease and depth of David Wilcox and Patty Griffin. In "Back When (You Used To Adore Me)," there is an honest brokenness: Your words were always starting things / That your heart was never finishing / You used to stand so close to me / Back when /... And I've wasted years trying to get back to "back when."
"Things You Can't Stop With Your Hands intentionally spreads itself across the genre-boundaries, and Tara Leigh handles the transitions with ease. It's fitting, given that the album itself is loosely built around the idea of change. "When I started working on this album, my family was in the midst of losing their land to a new highway, and my friend was in the midst of a divorce," she says. "So my mind was wrapped up in all these things that are beyond our control - from hardships like death and unrequited love to the beauty of redemption or one of those unexpected 'perfect days.' I tried to reach deep into those moments of uncertainty, surrender, and ultimately... joy." Even detached listeners will recognize their own stories on "Things..." and reach a little deeper too.

"You know how you can listen to a CD and every song sounds a like? Yeah, I hate that. But that's the thing I love about Tara Leigh Cobble. Each song is a unique mix of words and melody that you will gladly sing along with loudly...and if you're like me, off key...as you drive down the road. It's one of those CD's that you can put in and listen to the whole thing without yelling NEXT! and pushing the forward button. This CD is awesome, as well as her other one...here's to hindsight! GO BUY IT NOW!!!! o yeah! and don't forget the book....b/c it rocks too!!"
