Sonya Kitchell: This Storm

Sonya Kitchell
This Storm
Decca/Velour Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
I know people love to jump on bandwagon's and I am suggesting a new one in the young 19 year old Sonya Kitchell. Given her younger age it might be a surprise that this is not her first album but along with her seasoned veteran sounding voice it will make you a believer and forget about birthdays. This Storm was produced by Grammy Award-winner Malcolm Burn (Peter Gabriel, Emmylou Harris), and it offers a rock, country and alt-pop side to Kitchell, that showcases her multi-talented vocals.

Key Track: "Here To There"

Band With Similar Fire:
Fiona Apple
