Review: why this woman isn't hugely famous already stuns me. She has an amazing vocal range, her killer band can play anything, and her songs go right to the heart of human experience. I love the way members of her group slip in tasty solos periodically. This CD combines the punch & vibe of 60s Stax soul & classic country stylings into a new musical landscape she makes all her own.

*1/ A Little Crazy (3:52) - guitar starts> slow tempo song about a failed relationship soars into the stratosphere vocally building into a midtempo song> quick fade on vocal
2/ Darkness Falls So Quiet (4:23) - slow funk song explodes vocally with horns up front> quick stop
*3/ Listen Up (3:05) - synth starts> slow start swings quickly midtempo, then swings way out>
*4/ Goodnight Rhonda Lee (2:28) - vocal start> country feel> midtempo song about moving forward with life bounces and swoons> guitar solo> midtempo song> quick stop
*5/ If I Could (3:20) - guitar starts> midtempo song> spacey chorus to end
6/ Colors (2:40) - piano starts> midtempo song on sobriety> quick stop
*7/ Brokedown Luck (3:39) - piano starts> stomping & wailing midtempo song> horns solo> midtempo song> quick stop
8/ Love Living Here (Even When I Don't) (3:24) - bass/horns start> slow tempo song> slow fade
9/ Sleepwalking (3:42) - disco feel to start with horns> uptempo song> disco break> uptempo song> quick fade
