Debut Artist Worth Watching
On occasion, you come across a young artist who has potential to catch on in a big way. Britt Nicole is such an artist. With her au currant pop style and honest lyrics, Britt could carve a niche for herself. Her debut album, Say It, is extremely catchy and exuberant. Still, there are a few areas where she will need to “find her own way” in the future.
Several of the tracks, i.e. “Holiday” and “Ready,” exude Top 40 radio potential. Britt’s songs could stylistically be compared to Nelly Furtado (“Holiday”), Lindsay Lohan (“Good Day”) and Hilary Duff (“Sunshine Girl”). As a whole, her album is reminiscent of Stacie Orrico’s soulful ideals with mass radio appeal. While likeable, Britt could use more innovation.
Musically and vocally, this album is solid. The melodies are infectious, and her voice is appropriately raspy without sacrificing vocal flexibility. Say It is a good listen the entire way through.
Knowing that Britt wrote or co-wrote all of the songs on her debut shows promise for her as an artist. If she can break away from sounding too much like her peers and really tap into more artistic lyrics on her sophomore project, we may see her star rising.
