Profile The 21st century equivalent to Heart. But this band is much more varied than the Wilson sisters. Founder Linda Marso (piano, electric keyboards) is a classically trained pianist (Juilliard School graduate) , you can appreciate that background through the entire album.  And lead vocalist Tracey Blue, WOW… the woman has the vocal cords of a goddess, high range, passionate performances.

The sort of rock they made is truly innovative, with strings, flute and synthesizers, but don’t be scared, all perfectly mixed in the background, texturizing the songs, this is rock music. The songs… another high point here. Mostly ballads (not cheesy at all), but strong and meaty. Think Jim Steinman’s music without dramatics. The rhythm section and guitars are really good, rounding this ‘organic’ album.
