Trixie Whitley emerged as the singer in Daniel Lanois’ Black Dub project a few years back and her voice immediately stood out as a versatile, emotional and powerful instrument. Here it is given all the space and time it needs and for the most part Whitely nails it both vocally and as a songwriter. ‘Pieces’ in particular is a classic slice of jazz and blues drenched soul music, her voice straining and cracking with its delivery. She seamlessly blends genres such as electronica and r&b making this a post-modern take on traditional musical forms that showcases a truly magical voice.
