Currently listening to: Heartbeat – their brand new debut CD. Style: A cappella ladies trio.

I must say, I am a little disappointed. I was really looking forward to receiving my (complimentary!) copy of this CD, and I had been conditioned to expect a certain type and class of recording. I was prepared to rip it apart, but I can’t! It’s quite good.

They have a wonderful light, tight sound. Fantastic unisons (they’re sisters, that can’t hurt!), solid yet unique arrangements, and a nice, varied selection of songs. They’ve pulled material from sources as diverse as Keith Lancaster (Acappella Company), Phil Cross, Mosie Lister, Michael Card, and Point of Grace. But they make each song their own. They’ve done a great job of putting their own twist and identity to the music.

They have a very pure sound that just floats along, unforced, gently soothing and melodic.

And who’s the chick doing the low stuff! You go sister!

All in all, this is a great first project from a group with a lot of potential. I would love to produce/record their next album! I’m definitely going to bid on it and pester them mercilessly.
