Light as a Feather
A sweet, pretty and fragile piano track, with support from acoustic guitar and later on, french horn. Reflective and mellow. This track is performed live on an old, upright piano for a nicely nostalgic sound. There are some clicking sounds (e.g. at 0:25.5) which are not a problem with the recording, but the sound of the clamp up/down of the sustain piano resonating with the body of the piano, a natural part of the live performance on a real piano. (No MIDI).

The BBC Music on "Songs From The White Sea":
"Quiet may have ceased being the new loud, but this demonstrates that Ericson is a welcome addition to the school of soft, reflective troubadours. It is an album that consistently doesn’t do what you think it’s going to, and frequently delights. BBC Music / Music Week Panel
