The album title, the artist's name, and the cover art are all rather mysterious on this debut release. It's also a mystery who wrote the music on the 11 tracks, even though they make sure you know that Schascle wrote the lyrics. Dig a little deeper and you'll find big money was spent on Haunted By Real Life. Big time Madonna producer Patrick Leonard handled the production. Added to the mix are several top-notch studio musicians, including Luis Conte, Paulino da Costa, Steve Lukather, David Paich, John Patitucci, and the late Jeff Porcaro, along with Maxine Waters, N'dea Davenport, and the Andrae Crouch Choir on background vocals. As it turns out, Schascle (pronounced "Chess-el" according to a sticker on the cover), is quite the blue-eyed soul singer. Her voice is sometimes reminiscent of Stephanie Mills. The songwriting is pretty good also. If one were to judge this book by the cover, which, in this case, would be the cover art and the album title (along with the artist's name), one might think this were a world music or a folkie, contemplative release, not a soulful pop album by a girl from Florida. However, it's a decent album, and a mystery still remains why the record company never released another Schascle album.
And MORE great stuff!
Some SERIOUS R&B and pop sittin' here! Top notch musicianship too!
Amazing album, you go Twinkle!
Twinkle is one of the greatest undiscovered artist I've ever known. She can belt it out and then go way down to a breathy whisper like no other. Here's to hoping that she'll put out something new and amazing for the New Millenium!
