2,5 out of 5

"Through our veins" is the sophomore album from singer / songwriter Karen Choi, a nice and comfy album that lies between folk rock and country.
Lyric-wise, Karen takes the listener on a trip through the heartland in songs like "Road to Tennessee", "Kentucky hills" and "Mississippi river heart".
She has a tender and warm voice that bring thoughts to Sheryl Crow at times, I especially like her vocalperformance in the delta blues of "In the morning".
But mostly the music gets me in the mood where it feels like I´m sitting by the campfire on a hot summer night, I only wish there were more songs that would lift me up the same way "Older" and "Nineteen" does.
Highlights : Older, In the morning
Recommended if you like Anna Rose, Kim Hill, Pernilla Andersson
