Right from jump, Yve Mary B’s rendition of Roy Orbison’s classic “Crying” had us sitting up and taking notice of her pure unfiltered singing ability. Her hushed version of the song––its sparse arrangement and the singer’s abilty to meet the demands of its high notes––allows the meaning to truly hit home. “Don’t Be Afraid” shifts to a much higher energy and a full arrangement that includes backup singers and a nice guitar solo in a song whose inspirational and optimistic message would be right at home in the church/praise-music genre. Yve Mary B shows her country-pop chops on “High On A Mountain” with a big, twangy production. This U.K.-based singer-songwriter is a multi-dimensional talent.
