Mandy Kemp's new album is captivating and stunning
(Published: May 03, 2019)

Mandy Kemp truly captivates on her new jazz album Firecracker.

The first song on the record, "How Little We Know," is a sentimental love ballad with a nostalgic energy. The vintage aesthetic of this track recalls iconic artists such as Patsy Cline, Billie Holiday, and Jo Stafford, to mention but a few. The instrumental track also has a balanced and crisp production. The studio sheen of the record allows for Kemp's stunning vocals to shine through.

"I Don't Care Much" is a somber cut that has a deeply cinematic feel. Kemp's vocal performance on this song is light, delicate, and expressive. She perfectly wavers between strong and powerful to then sensitive and intricate. " I Don't Care Much" perfectly showcases her prowess as a seasoned and skilled vocalist. On top of this, the double bass in this track gives the number a New York City jazz vibe that is deeply visceral and evocative.

One of the standouts on the album is "In a Manner of Speaking." There is a distinctly contemporary feel to the song. With her lovely voice Kemp takes the listener on a visceral journey as she weaves a compelling story. The breathtaking performance from Kemp on this track recalls iconic artists such as Mina and Ella Fitzgerald, to mention but two!

Sugar (That Sugar Baby O' Mine)" is the most upbeat song on the album. It's a quirky and sweet number exquisitely performed by Mandy. It's a light and fun song that perfectly ends this fascinating record.
