Charity

Yellow

Review by Gary Hill

There is a type of female performer in the modern age who does a version of soulful music that’s both classic and still fresh. It seems like it’s something that’s existed at various times in the history of pop music. Charity is one such performer. She’s quite good at what she does. This EP is entertaining and varied enough to avoid feeling samey. I’d love to hear more for this artist. She shows a lot of promise.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2015  Volume 5 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Beautiful Moments

The mellow, rather folk-like soulful vibe on this song is classic. It’s modern pop with a real leaning toward classic sounds.

Inspired
Less soulful, there is a playful feeling here. It’s still folk based, but there is also some jazz in this. It’s modern pop for sure, but the inspiration hangs on the classic music of bygone eras.
Pretty
Also jazzy, this feels a bit like Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians meets Stevie Wonder.
Undescribable
Piano starts this jazzy number with some scat singing over the top. It works to something closer to the rest of the set. There is definitely a Rickie Lee Jones vibe to a lot of this EP. This song shows it off more than the rest, though.
