This LA based singer-songwriter's third studio album comprises simple, upbeat pop melodies and songs that are rather grandly described as documenting "a journey in transformation from regret to compassion".
They're all originals aside from a slowed down Nebraska style cover of Bruce Springsteen's Dancing In The Dark.
The first single, Push On and In Love Again, were co-written with Nashville singer-songwriter Robby Hecht and he shares the vocals on the latter.
The album is produced by Anthony J. Resta and Karyadi Sutedja. It features cello by Cameron Stone and Ruslan Sirota on piano.
Lewis says she tends to prefer sad, melancholy songs but, although there are more break-ups than make-ups, she is always careful to make some optimistic point even when the best laid plans go awry.
In Please Don’t Go , for instance, she sings that "Miracles happen all the time". The sickly sweet You And Me cuts out all negatively entirely.
Scars is based on remembered conversations with the singer's late grandmother who taught her that dwelling upon regrets is a pointless exercise. Lewis passes on this wisdom, albeit in a fairly mediocre set of songs.
