Welcome to the Thursday Tunes! Each week, I will showcase music, whether new or old. Hopefully you will find something that interests you here!
This week, Thursday Tunes is all about Kelly Sweet, a contemporary singer who adds a touch of classical and jazz to her songs. Her voice is crystal clear and very beautiful, a great accompaniment to her mellow, low key songs. The way her songs are arranged ensures that nothing overshadows her jaw-dropping voice. (I'm a big fan of this new trend, which is a mixture of pop, classical, and jazz - I think it's great to listen to.)
Kelly currently has one album out, entitled We Are One, which is available for purchase from the Amazon MP3 Store for $8.99. My two favorite songs off this album are "Dream On," which is a cover of Aerosmith's hit song, and "Now We Are Free" which is a cover of Lisa Gerrard's song (if you've seen Gladiator, you'll probably recognize this song!). "We are One" and "Raincoat" are also wonderful, as is the entire album!
