Album Name: Anything but Numb
Artist: Diona Devin
Year/Label: 2006 / Independent
This is another one of those albums I have a hard time reviewing. It’s not really my favorite style of music. I am not even sure what that is. It’s got a little country twang to it, a little rock, but mostly mainstream AAA pop.
The title track, “Anything But Numb”, reminds me of Melissa Etheridge though not as rockin’. Still quite radio friendly.
She has a very good voice, it’s sometimes smokey, sultry, but can also sound vulnerable.
I’m learning that the more spins I give this, the more I like it. It’s not yet going in my personal rotation, but it’s good. I guess if pressed I’d say it’s kinda Melissa Etheridge-lite. Which is not a bad thing in my book.
