On her new album, singer-songwriter Anita Keys showcases her husky vocals and skills on the piano right from the start with the catchy "Song in the Head." While many of the tunes are about breakups, Keys doesn't just sing about getting her heart broken (though she explicitly references romantic love in "Fallin' Again"); she takes on more esoteric topics too. The album has a very mellow tone and happy-go-lucky vibe as Keys relies upon percussion and horns for her up-tempo approach. "Butterflies" stands out thanks to her soft singing and a sharp saxophone solo by guest Reggie Redd. Ultimately, Keys makes a solid attempt here to mix pop with a bit of jazz. ” - Aziza Doleh

Jana McAlea Soothing waves of summer night music You can't be in a rush listening to this album. Close the door. Pour a drink. Be alone and listen. Move inside these songs and they'll form pictures and stories in your mind. Ahh, this is a far cry from screaming guitars. A welcome change of pace to the tired ear. Warning: Frantic numb-nuts will have no use for this music! I caught Anita Keys (the Low-Note Girl) live in Cleveland, Ohio and really enjoy her unhurried style. Other easy favorites on the album include Barfly, Number Nine, Cottage Lullaby, 3 Am Song and the instant crowd pleaser Little Rivers. Cool instrumentation and a full band sprinkled here and there give some of these cuts a little extra bounce and rhythm. If you are in need of a vacation but can't afford to go anywhere, just buy a bottle of wine and listen to this album from start to finish. I guarantee, you'll be relaxed afterwards. If you can't afford the wine - just buy the music. Cheers!  ” - Jana McAlea
