CD Review:

Rozzi Crane, a high school junior and singer/songwriter at Marin Academy in the San Francisco Bay area, turns in a single that captures and showcases her sultry alto voice in the context of a jazzy/neo- soul/r&b flavored track that readily recalls Joss Stone.

With the backing of omnipresent keyboardist Cori Jacobs
whose organ playing adds personality to the track, and pro vocal arrangements by the ascending Laniko Music that elevate and enhance both the production and the songwriting, Rozzi adeptly displays her emotive vocal qualities with an uncharacteristic calm and confidence for her age. Itís her best performance and most complete songwriting effort to date - despite the songís short duration time of only two minutes and thirty-five seconds. It will have instant appeal to music supervisors for featured use.
