Stephanie Sellars shines with jazz standards on new album
(Published: February 18, 2020)

New York-based jazz vocalist Stephanie Sellars shines on Girl Who Loves, a lovely collection of mostly standards invigorated by her personal touch.

This studio effort features 13 new songs making for nearly an hour of new music from this talented singer. One of the first things that you will notice is definitely the fact that the sound of this album is warm and clear, with a spectacular approach to production. Every note feels powerful and present, yet there is also much room for dynamics. The biggest star under the spotlight is without a doubt Sellars' amazing voice. She has a very smooth and pleasant tone and more importantly, she has substantial control over her vocal dynamics.

This means that she can seamlessly blur the lines between deeply organic performances and more nuanced moments, going for a broad palette of sounds. The opening cut is a beautiful track titled "Bei Mir Bist du Schon," a German title which highlights the performer's one of a kind approach to music and creativity. The composition is a perfect match with the album's concept, and it serves as a great introduction to this release. One of my personal favorite songs is definitely "You Got to My Head," a memorable song that stands out for its arrangement and unique vocal sound with some tasteful reverb tones. "I Can't Give You Anything but Love" is also an excellent song which highlights the singer's vocal prowess over a minimalist yet sophisticated guitar-based arrangement.

At the end of the day, these are only some of the highlights on an album that's a true sensory experience. Sellars has a sultry voice that sets the bar higher in terms of feel and dynamics, and she knows how to make the most out of her remarkable talent. If you enjoy jazz with a retro feel, you should definitely give this album a go. There is also room for a collaboration. One of the tracks, "Unforgettable," also features a duet with the talented fellow singer, Tony Middleton, who brings a timeless touch to this song. The two have a unique chemistry on this cut and the song feels romantic and catchy with a beautiful piano sound.
