I’m really enjoying this CD. Holly Cieri has a voice with a phenomenal range. In parts of songs, her voice is soft and smooth and in other parts, reminding me much of Kim Carnes, with that rasping ability to belt out a song.
The songs on this CD run the gamut from ‘Old Time Rock and Roll,’ through Jazz and Pop music. There’s definitely music to cause you to get up and dance, as well as some to just quietly listen to and relate to your own memories. Of the eight songs on this CD, Geoff Caple wrote all but one, “Good Clean Fun” (originally by the Allman Brothers), allows the singer to showcase that deep voice of hers and she sounds like she’s having fun with the song.
If you’ve not heard Holly Cieri sing before, I think this CD will help you get to know this talented lady.
