Well, it’s not physical beauty that bought her to the playlist – even though she lacks none -, but the beauty of her simple, straightforward and clear voice, together with nice fitted-in classical sounds of jazz.
Erin Bode is her name and she is a young vocal jazz artist from the US who just released her second album, “Over and Over“. As musical style, she can be compared to Norah Jones or Katie Melua, but i would prefer her over the two mentioned above. She lacks some of the depth of Diana Krall, but she has all the time in the world to prove this wrong. And I am hope she will.
My personal favourite is the Graceland track, with some nice lyrics and great passion in her voice. I think she did her best in this track and it turned out great. Also, the cover of Cyndi Lauper’s “Time after time” sounds excelent…even better than the original.
There is a significat improvement from her previous album, “Don’t take your time”, and the chances are that this is going to be continued in her future albums, as most of the critics agree upon her great potential.
As Dailymotion has some problems lately, I’ll put one of her songs for download – Erin Bode – Graceland, from the Over and Over album.
