Es enthält zwölf fesselnde Songs voller Intensität und viel Wiedererkennungswert, in denen sie Elemente aus Folk, Acoustic, Pop, Rock und Indie kombiniert. Odlums Stimme bedient ein breites Spektrum und ist von einer mächtigen, aber auch ergreifenden Qualität. Ein wundervoller Mix aus freundlichem, irisch gefärbtem Gesang und gefühlvollen Refrains, der den Zuschauer berührt und ihn mit einbezieht. ODi vereint Joan Armatradings Pathos, Beth Ortons Auge für das Schrullige und Didos Romantik zu ihrem eigenen einzigartigen und fesselnden Sound. Unterstützt wird Odlum auf der Bühne von Dave Redfearn an Gitarre und Harmonika.
