Michele Ari has a terrific voice and a smart way with words. Her debut album is a confident collection of songs.
My Sleeping Beauty has a ringing guitar and a wistful lyric of faded love. Please is an up-tempo song that instantly memorable. Ari sings a strong lead while Ronny Elliott provides a nice backing vocal. Nevermind starts with the intriguing lyric “Woke up in last nights makeup”. It’s musically reminiscent of Nick Lowe’s early eighties sound. The country-tinged 1,000 Kisses closes the brief but sweet collection. Michele Ari is an talented new artist.
