your head up:
years ago, Laurnea
arrived on the soul scene in a major way scoring it big time with
'Can't let go' which became
a top ten hit on both the Billboard Top 100 and R&B charts.
Her debut album called 'Betta Listen'
soon followed that featured songs produced by some of today's
hottest producers Omar, Raphael
Saadiq and Speech
(fr: Arrested Development
album has come along since then (Laurnea
2 in 2000) which firmly showed the young singer's growth
and maturity as an artist. Now an established and experienced
singer and songwriter, Laurnea returns with 'Keep
your head up' the new single taken fron her third album
'New Territory'. The
song itself is a delight - full of gander and cheer, a mixture
of old school renassiance and modern neo soul mystic. Laurnea's
voice is distinctive, exceptionally wicked and well textured filled
with all the warmth of a soft summer rain on a warm summer's day.
album as a whole is excellent as it offers several more of these
beaties for your listening ear. It's availble now at your local
record shop so I would definitely advise you to pick up a copy
if you haven't already (as it's money well spent - trust me).
A truly steller TY-D
Listen to Laurnea's
your head up'
