CD Review: New Music From Singer/Songwriters Janey Street, Greta Gaines, Raven, Devi And Chey

It has been less than a year since Janey Street released her last album ("My Side Of Paradise"), but when inspiration knocks, you have to answer the call. Her new album "In My Own Skin" will be released on June 23rd through Blue Elan Records. This new album looks to redirect Street's music to a more retro rock, blues, R&B sound, beginning with "Wrap My Mind Around You." The song's soulful vibe showcases Street's wonderful songwriting. She delivers a pop gem with "In My Own Skin," then rocks out on the bluesy guitar-driven "Guilty Pleasures." The Americana/country vibe of "Undone" and "Wreckage" showcases Street's return to her roots as these songs stand strong among her vast catalog of music. Her new album wraps up with the dark, acoustic pop tones of "Dignity" with vocal help by Dame Crowford and a re-recorded version of her hit single "Under The Clock."

Her new short 7-song EP begins with the bluesy-pop tones of the title-song "Tumbleweed," as her vocals are strong and take control of the song. She keeps the tempo going with the storied lyrics of "Leo For Real," before slowing down for the acoustic folk ballad "Only Lonely." She finishes up with the classic Americana appeal of "Sweet William" and the country-rock of "Light It Up." Gaines will donate 100% of the download sales of "Light It Up" to NORML (Patients Out of Time and Tennessee United).
