CD REVIEW: Phyllis Renee

Artist: Phyllis Renee Genre: Pop CD Review: Phyllis sent me a teaser cd, and I want to hear more. She is a STRONG voice. You know how at times Jewel sings from her depths? Reaches right down into her soul, where all the powerful vocals come from, and rips out some 'raw woman sounds'? Well, that's what happens nearly all the time from Phyllis.
She's helped out by some fine guitars professionalized by Frank Anastos and Mike Cannon. But of course, the songs - they are the champions here. 'Meet Me at the Café' is pretty damn good. Phyllis backs herself up sleekly too, with a chorus of cat-like voices.
Snare begins 'Bad Love Is Like Poison' and it's got that wild, wanky guitar from the 70s. A good way to end this 4 song cd.
Sometimes I don't think this singer needs a mic. I think she's going to be great at outside concerts. And if you sit too close to the stage in the café, you'll be blown away.
