An experienced pro backup singer for mainstream artists, Kayla Starr really steps up and takes command on her dense, trippy, often challenging, but ultimately unique recordings. “Deepest Sea” and “Truth” are dark, multi-layered and alternately chaotic and jarring, but Starr’s voice sounds great. “& Say You Will” really stands out for some us due to its artful juxtaposition of heavy, mournful tones and bright, scintillating keyboards. Though none of the tracks are particularly catchy/memorable, there are passages that could definitely complement a moody/horror movie. It’s alluring stuff and we admire Starr for swinging out there and not playing it safe. We urge her to take even more chances with her voice.
