Album Review

Curb Records expands beyond its well-known country roster with Soul Deep, the beautifully produced debut from Laura Turner, a singer whose classically trained voice is all at once operatic, dramatic, and ethereal — truly defying typical categorization. Think Sarah Brightman's early-2000s remix hits and that gets you on the trail.

The rest of the material ranges from a duet with Ray Vega on his Spanish-language hit "Angel de Madrugada," a dreamy take on the originally hard-rocking Creed hit "My Sacrifice," and others by Diane Warren and Desmond Child. Her vocal intensity may be too much for mainstream adult contemporary and pop, which favors lesser voices and more conventional song forms. But her talent for tugging the heart is undeniable.
