Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

Michele Ari has a terrific voice and a smart way with words. Her debut album is a confident collection of songs.

“My Sleeping Beauty” has a ringing guitar and a wistful lyric of faded love.

“Please” is an up-tempo song that instantly memorable. Ari sings a strong lead while Ronny Elliott provides a nice backing vocal.

“Nevermind” starts with the intriguing lyric “Woke up in last nights makeup”. It’s musically reminiscent of Nick Lowe’s early eighties sound.

The country-tinged “1000 Kisses” closes the brief but sweet collection. Michele Ari is an talented new artist.
