Laela Giovanna is a Philly-based artist who feels her songs deeply and is fully invested in each of her performances, presenting the songs with a smokey tone and sonic sophistication that makes them radio- friendly. Piano ballad “I Believe In You” is especially emotive as she testifies to her lover “You are a work of art.” Same goes for the acoustic guitar-laced “I Won’t Pick Up.” Piano again sets the tone for “Nightflight,” where she expresses lovesick emotion. Pop/R&B listeners will notice a nod here and there to other artists who have graced the charts over the past few years, going back even to Destiny’s Child. But Giovanna’s work has enough of a modern edge to make her eligible for current playlists.
