Much as we may lean towards the big and bassy or digitally mutated sounds, we’re suckers for a sweet soulful voice and so we’ve been loving an album we’ve come across recently by New York based French Caribbean singer Cilla K. With Philly producer / musician Junius Bervine ((Floetry, D'Angelo,Common,Pharell Williams) on the production, some of the beats have got a bigger bump than a pregnant woman with triplets but Cilla’s vocals manage to keep them all on the smooth and jazzy road throughout and the Guadeloupe lilt on her accent that shines through from time to time is most sweet indeed. You can listen to the whole album here, or download a little taster below.
