CD Review: White Widow Shows Us Her "Black Heart"

Musical artist, White Widow, whose name comes from the Stevie Nicks' song "Gold Dust Woman," is making a impact in music. Her latest release "Black Heart" is her most vulnerable album to date and is available now.

The album's title track "Black Heart" shows White Widow's soft side until the chorus comes crashing in with a pounding drumbeat and pleading vocals. "Quitter" shows off the White Widow's rock attitude, but her voice seems to take a backseat to the music in the overall sound mix. At times, the music takes away from her powerful voice. White Widow performs a passionate cover of her idol, Steve Nicks' song "Lady From The Mountain." The song "Warriors" carries a nice groove, but lacks the punch needed to make this song stand-out. At times, her voice draws comparisons to Tori Amos with her soft, but powerful singing style as evident in the songs "Strong Again" and "In Your Life."

Her music has been licensed to MTV and featured in numerous movies and television shows. She has toured for the past few years, opening for the likes of Sandra Bernhard and guitarist Steve Mazur of Our Lady Peace. She's performed at the legendary CBGB and SXSW Festival and is currently on tour on the east coast. She will be performing at the City Ale House in Danbury, CT on June 18.
