Editors’ Notes

On Acoustic Soul’s anchor tune, “Video”, India.Arie joyfully sings, “I’m not the average girl from your video” over a head-nodding groove; it’s a line that perfectly encapsulates her ethos and establishes the singer/songwriter as a confident counterpoint to the stereotypes of commercial R&B. But that theme reverberates throughout her debut’s laidback delivery, jazzy harmonies and arrangements that evoke Carole King and Stevie Wonder. As Acoustic Soul makes clear, Arie is many things—prodigiously talented, vocally gifted, optimistic—but she’s definitely not average.

idia arie

love the girl, really beautiful music that reminds me of lying on a beach on a tropical island somewhere, sipping on a cocktail! Lovely and timeless!

acoustic AND beautiful chilled out soul

India.Arie's chilled out soulful albumn forces you to sit down relax and appreciate the finer things around and about you. Beautiful easy chords with lilting, sometimes mellow, sometimes vibrant melodies that will make you hum them for hours after. Inspiring lyrics that make you smile. Particularly noteworthy was Beautiful, Brown Skin, and Strength Courage and Wisdom.

India Arie is fantastic

I bought this CD about 6 years and played it over and over until I moved to Oz and it was lost in the shuffle. I never get sick of this beautiful soulful album. It is a great cd to listen to with the loves that you love!
