CD Review: Erin Dickins Returns To Jazz With "Nice Girls"
Her voice shines on the album's opening track "I Just Found Out About Love". The smooth Jazz sounds just float in the background of the songs "Je Cherche Un Homme" and "Nice Girls Don't Stay For Breakfast" as Erin's vocals become the spotlight of all these songs. She picks up the tempo with "Tain't Whatcha Do" and "Walking With Your Barefeet On", but quickly returns to the sultry sounds of "Long Ago And Far Away". Erin tries her hand at a duet with a Louis Armstrong sound-alike in "Can't We Be Friends" and also some scat singing in "Loads of Love", but her strength is in her gentle, but powerful vocal deliveries.
Erin Dickens has some live dates scattered between April and June and her new album is available now at CDBaby, Amazon and on iTunes. Visit Erin's website (ErinDickins.com) for more information.
