Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Aimee Leonard’s voice is incredibly powerful and she has the songs to match.

“Baby One More lie” sees her deftly alluding to Britney’s “Baby one more time” while still making her own song resonate.

“You Can’t save me” sees her assert her independence to a great tune.

“Dearest Friend” is a sweet song for a troubled soul with some neat piano playing.

The powerful “Stick it” has her reaching almost Janis Joplin-esque heights vocally while bashing away at the piano with fervor.

“What Happened” is a strong debut for the gifted Leonard.

Comment: Definitely a fantastic musician. It really shows when a performer has studied music, and also has the passion to express it. I’ve watched Aimee perform at my home and at shows and I am always inspired. Get the CD!! The musical revolution is here again! Let’s resolve and get Aimee’s album, amen.

Comment: I have seen Aimee Leonard play in Sudbury and she has a good stage presence; saucy, sometimes delirious – she really brings her audience along for the ride!

I also received this CD for review and I second Anna Maria’s recommendation. It’s very nice and she’s got a killer voice.
