Joanna Mosca has been garnering quite a bit of acclaim due to her latest single “Where Does Good Love Go,” as well as the comments made by many radio programmers on her recent radio tour. Her debut album, I’m happy to report, is just as pleasing to the ear.
Mosca is an artist that can float from style to style and do so in a manner that sounds almost effortless. The afore-mentioned single, a duet with Richie McDonald, is a fine example of what she can do with a modern Country arrangement. But, there’s more sides to her talent.
“Like I’m Leaving” has Country instrumentation, and is a Country song. However, her vocal is one that conjures up some of the fine work that was coming out of Memphis in the late 1960s, a la Dusty Springfield.
She strikes a dreamy tone on the wide-eyed “What People Forget,” as well as on the Inspirational “Learn To Swim,” which are two of her strongest performances on the disc.
Love songs are also something the beautiful songstress does well, with the pretty “He Sang To Me” and “The Little Things” being a great example of this. With music this good, I don’t see any reason why Mosca’s star won’t be on the rise. I’m already looking forward to album # 2!
