Dominique Stewart will remind listeners of the genre’s most prominent stars. At the same time, she’s working to carve a niche of her own with a lengthy, ambitious song such as “Start Over,” which, with a resonant church choir underneath, builds and builds oh-so-gradually. We only wish its peak/ climax were bigger and grander. The song simply doesn’t pay off. Stewart does well on the inspirational piano ballad “The Light,” though we suggest she try even harder on the high notes––we wanna hear you carry it! The Demi Lovato-influenced “It’s Love” delivers a big beat and lots of pop-radio production punch (but with perhaps a too-heavy hand on the bass knob?). Stewart has work to do in developing her material.
