The material of most artists will benefit from savvy arrangements that are superbly recorded and mixed. But when the artist’s voice is this good and her material is both eloquent and commercial, the results are unquestionably label-ready. We like Connolly’s earthy vocal tone, its subtle quiver that suffuses “Life In Rear View.” The song’s handclaps and kids chorus in the background are nice touches too. Her compelling lyrics shine again on “Let Me Go,” whose unexpected fingersnaps and backup choir would sound unique on the radio. Connolly goes more uptempo on the catchy and melodic “Highlight Reel” where her voice is, again, perfectly placed so we hear and feel every single word.
