Album Name: Ten Songs
Artist: Kami Lyle
Year/Label: 2005 / Independent
Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
Kami Lyle had a major label debut that didn’t sell enough, now she’s on her own. The singer and trumpet-player seems to flourish in such settings.
“Is It now” is a calm, loungey song that recalls such old time greats as Peggy Lee. Lyle seems a bit out of time but it’s cool.
“Melody Blue” is another track that sees Lyle use her soothing voice well and playing her trumpet marvelously.
“This Town” is a fine song in the Rickie Lee Jones vein.
“Too Much world” is an intimate croon that she handles well.
Her album shows she’s here to stay.
