Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Jamie Leonhart’s ep is a very nice record. I’d say it’s a little bit loungey with some jazz thrown in.

Her vocals are sassy and relaxed and the songs well arranged.

The title song sounds like something familiar, its jazzy tone is instantly likeable.

“After the Rain” is a lovely song with a smoky late nite vibe to it.

“Rainbow Connection” with its Hammond organ harks back to the sounds of the sixties. Peggy Lee might have sung it.

This ep is over way too soon. It’s addictive in its charming way. More, please.

Comment: This record is mediocre at best. The singer holds back and doesn’t have much authenticity. The production quality is home studio and sounds amateur.
