:: Zadita Smith ::
28 January 2008 / Demo / 6 Trk CD

Manchester’s Zadita Smith possesses one thing that is often absent from many singer /songwriters repertoire : a voice. Her soulful vocal style touches on jazz and blues as well as traditional R’n’B. The acoustic guitar is noticeably raw, but with some eloquent production she’s also built a very complimentary sounding band around her. “Go On” is more upbeat whilst the rhythmic piano of “Isn’t It Funny” helps Smith punch way above her weight. This is after all a homegrown demo published on a saved-up budget. Yet it sounds a lot more expensive than it should. “Before You Go” is maybe my favourite track, offering up something a little different in the arrangement and as the mini-album progresses there are hints of rock and folk, especially as “Journey Of Me” closes this mini-album on subtle, stripped back acoustic loops and Zadita’s memorable, impressive voice.
