Style: Pop/R&B

With artful production supporting her sensuous high-pitched voice, these tracks by Portland-based artist Briana Piedra nail the moody, chill-pop genre perfectly. “In My Head” already sounds like a hit to us as Piedra’s aching  voice goes into a chest register. The sonic sophistication continues with “It Was Always YOU,” where the consistently expert production adds a metallic shimmer and big bass tones as Piedra proclaims “I’m doing better without you.” Her song “CRAVE” has a subtle island/summer/beach vibe, with distant guitar tones. All in all, this is an artist whose voice and material are a tight match. Fans of artists such as Ariana Grande and Summer Walker will find plenty to like here.
