It may take several years of listening to be able to say, "Yes, that's Sarah Manning." However, just one time through Dandelion Clock is enough to know she doesn't sound like anyone else. Developing a voice isn't something that every musician does, and not all who do so are distinctive enough. But this collection shows that Manning is clearly on her way.
