Chicago artist Matt LeGrand is working at a high level with slick, catchy, dance-inducing pop songs that are radio-ready. “12 AM” is all about hooking up at midnight and LeGrand invests his appealing vocals with plenty of sensual anticipation without overdoing it. “All Good” is just as sexy, though perhaps the heavier production makes the chorus a bit too dense, but the verses are wisely presented with a spare, uncluttered style. The artist shows he’s more than a one-trick pony with his fun cover of Stevie Wonder’s “What Christmas Means to Me,” showing off this young, likeable singer in a retro-jazz-pop show-biz entertainer incarnation. LeGrand might do well to pursue publishing opportunities.
