Heather Headley | Audience of One [Gospel | EMI, 2009] | Music Review
You know, it’s not very often that we will steer away from our beloved jazz at The Urban Flux. However, as music enthusiast you know good music is simply what it is …. good music. That said, every generation unveils a multi-faceted talent that’s fresh, stunning, powerful, and delivers sweet melodies and harmonic symmetry that beckons us to seriously take note.
Therefore, on this occasion I’m compelled to acknowledged with respect that I’m amazed by not only her voice but with lyrical content on “Audience of One” by the dynamic vocal artistry of Tony award winner Heather Headley. Surprised, and pleasantly so. Being a daughter of a preacher, the gifted and beautiful songstress describes this album as being a “natural transition” and how she was uncomfortable with the provocative lyrics submitted to her on two previous records.
