iTunes Review

Anyone who has ever adhered to the Bob Seger credo that “…today’s music ain’t got the same soul” might change their tune after hearing Laura Izibor’s debut. Let The Truth Be Told grooves on bygone tones stewed in the roux of yesteryear’s Motown sound — but the tastefully modern production nurtures an overall relevance that keeps things fresh during those timeless moments. The first cut “Shine” opens with Izibor inflecting soulful harmonies over staccato piano notes before a deeply resonating bass and an up-front dance beat step in, authoritatively reminding us that 21st century soul can confidently strut with one foot in the past (dig that brazen horn section and grinding Hammond organ) and the other in the now of studio innovation. The Nigerian-Irish singer/songwriter took four years getting her first long-player to sound right and it shows, especially with the near perfect “From My Heart To Yours,” a truly fetching hit which has been featured on Grey’s Anatomy and VH1’s Tough Love. The soaring ballad “I Don’t Want You Back” is an instant classic, but it’s “Mmm…” that plays heaviest on the heartstrings.

Echoes Of A Future Soul Diva.

Being told by a friend that I might like Laura's style I was intrigued and tried her live set she did for iTunes last summer and it truly blew me away. This girl has a voice that blends the smoothness of Joss Stone, the elocution of Alicia keys and the gutsy tones of Jennifer Hudson. Even though I was hoping for a more stripped down album I can forgive her R&B baselines because her voice really is what is on display here and you won’t be disappointed. As for Highlights this album has the full package where every song is flawless. What I do implore you to do is to invest in her live material as from the track (Mmm...) live in dublin shows off her shinning personality and a very cute Irish accent. I shall be checking up on her site for a show that close to me and after reading this I hope you shall do the same.

Fantastic

She is the exact female version of John Legend, the way she plays with her vocals. Some say typical but the truth is that a voice like hers that contains a hint of tang and the traditional black soulful voice is what we all need right now.
