"Lorretta” is a mixed bag of covers leading into two originals penned by Lorretta, from Wickham Bishops, who has a big, bold voice and an elegant delivery and interpretation.
"How we Do" and "Price Tag" are skilfully reworked.
"Mamma Knows Best" and "Wings" have the gutsy, blowsy, sexy vocal range of a woman much older than 19 years.
Some lyrics are slightly over phrased and a couple of notes in "Read All About It" miss the mark but this doesn't detract from the overall beauty of her voice.
The originals, though, are the real gems on this CD.
Written and co-produced by the young singer, "Invisible" is contemporary pop that will appeal to a wide audience and "Have It" will become a club favourite.
I look forward to Lorretta branching out into creating more of the same.
