There are very few singers let alone female artists around who leave such an indelible impression on me as Tamia.
I've been a fan since 1994's "You Put A Move On My Heart" off of Q's Jook Joint with Quincy Jones. This is the first new album in 6 years for the underrated Canadian-American songstress who could sing bible verses and make me drop to my knees.
Tamia has one of the purest voices I have ever heard and if the album gods have anything to say about it, this new project should cement her place in the pantheons of music royalty.
I don't know the names of the producers or writers on this project but Tamia delivers the lyrics as if she were having a comfortable conversation with an old friend.
It's rare that I love a whole album (especially nowadays) but from beginning to end Tamia delivers each song with such beauty and understanding that if I were mute I would just play this album and let it speak for me.
Beautiful, Yes! Surprise, Not so much! This album is a must-have.
