Leah Capelle


Review by Gary Hill

I reviewed a previous release from Leah Capelle. I remember that the main thing holding the set together was the voice. Well, that voice is still a chief selling factor here. That said, there is more of a common thread running through this musically. This is modern hard rock with a real classic edge. It's also so cool.

Track by Track Review

Melodic rock, this has a bit of a modern edge, but overall it's more classic and old school. The balance between mellower and more rocking is great. I like this tune quite a bit. It is meaty and yet rather accessible. The guitar solo is melodic and expressive and yet has some crunch built into it.

Out Now
While the general musical territory here isn't far removed from the previous cut, this lands more on the hard rocking side than that opener did in some ways. That said, there is a bit more of a modern edge to this in a lot of ways.
Who I Am
There is more of a straight ahead hard rocking sound here. This is just so cool. The vocals are driving and insistent. The song is forward thinking and yet classic. This is the best tune of the set. Given how good the other two were, that says a lot.
