Style: Country-Rock

So much to praise here from country-rock artist Jenna Torres. Deep, sassy singing voice, a kick-ass band, and all of it so well recorded and mixed. “Tennessee Heat” showcases Torres’ gift for rich, tangible lyric detail as she sets a scene almost like a southern gothic novel. These qualities continue in the highly sensual “Tell Me In Kisses” (“...Heat’s coming off your body”). The arrangement’s twisted string section gives the song an underlying darkness. And Torres shows she has plenty of attitude in the accusatory “Stirring Embers,” about the troubling persistence of a former lover. Overall, we appreciate that every eloquent word she sings is as clear as a bell in the sound mixes. We urge Torres to delve into additional moods, as well.
