In the ten years since Nichole Nordeman’s last release, the singer/songwriter/piano player has flown somewhat under the radar aside from some spot touring, writing the Music Inspired By The Story concept collection, popping up on a few compilations and getting covered completely out of the blue by Prince. Despite The Unmaking EP clocking in at a mere six songs, it sure is wonderful to have her back to penning personal, pensive and sometimes challenging sentiments, accompanied by stirring contemporary pop arrangements. Throughout the short but sweet journey, Nordeman turns her attention to themes of brokenness and making the most of each moment, and regardless of the lengthy absence, she sounds even more seasoned than the last time around.
