Sometimes a beautiful voice is all you need to get by on. In the case of Nashville based Wendy Moten, things just go sky high when the songwriting and the production are such high-caliber. Her “Till I Get It Right” is a terrific song, a twangy heartbreak ballad adorned with lush production and first-rate players. So pretty. With “Nails In My Coffin” Moten sets her words of woe to a danceable, uptempo,  bluesy beat, and it works so well. By the time Vince Gill duets with her on the Linda Ronstadt classic “Faithless Love,” you understand that this woman has massive vocal chops, which so far has garnered her backup gigs with the likes of Faith Hill and Mr. Gill. Sounds to us like she’s ready for the spotlight.
