Review of Shea Seger's Debut CD
by Amanda G., 16, from US
What happens when you mix a fresh new artist with an amazing
new style? Shea Seger. Coming from a small town in Texas, Shea
was influenced by many types of music. Her debut album, "The May
Street Project," reflects those influences and adds her own special
touch. One word to describe "The May Street Project" would be:
real. Because there are hints of hip-hop, soul, pop, etc., the
album can appeal to a wide variety of music lovers. Shea also
has a voice of her own. Trying to describe it would be fierce
because it is amazing. To compare it to today's artist lineup
would also do it little justice because she has shaped and developed
her own style of singing.
Starting out the album with a bang is the song "Last Time." The
beat is catchy and it leads you into the unique beats and soulful
songs. "Clutch," which appears second on the album, also catches
you attention because of the feel of the song. "I Love You Too
Much" is a slow song that is sure to become a fan favorite because
of its light feel and electric quality.
Each song into the album brings out new beats and unique styles.
"Walk On Rainbows" has a tribal beat sense to it. "Always" is
a great duet with Ron Sexsmith. It has a good melody and atmosphere
about it. "I Can't Lie" is a sing-a-long song with an amazing
affect on the listener. Ending the album is the title song "May
Street" which contains great beats and powerful wording.
Throughout the album you hear everything from piano to the harmonica
and bells. The overall feel is powerful and emotionally strong.
Each genre is represented in this album. This is surely a good
addition if not a staple to any music collection and we have an
amazing artist on hands with Shea.
