Such a pleasant surprise when we listened to native Italian, Germany-based artist Anthony Lazaro. His accented English actually adds to the appeal of his recordings, such as “Hello,” a sweet little ukulele, electric guitar & voice song that delivers maximum atmosphere, right down to the gentle handclaps and rain effects. Lazaro’s appealing, resonant voice, never straining for a note, gets the ideal amount of reverb on “The City Lights,” where once again his vivid lyrics dovetail with his romantic message. We’re not as stoked with “The Guest List,” a cute, optimistic and danceable outing with a hook that’s a wee bit corny. Nevertheless, Lazaro is a unique artist, an artful, appealing communicator.
