iTunes Review

At just 19 years old, Sonya Kitchell already has the sound of a weathered veteran, and the Northampton, Massachusetts native’s second album, 2008’s This Storm, continues her growth as an recording artist. Recorded with producer Malcolm Burn (Emmylou Harris, Peter Gabriel) at his upstate NY studio, the album possesses both a down to earth honest charm and a hypercharged pop veneer that brings extra life to the propulsive groove pushing “Borderline,” an extra sass to the sashaying rhythm driving the country-inflected “Running,” and a juke-joint toughness to “Here to There.” “Walk Away” offers up her less adorned piano ballad side, “Soldier’s Lament’ is gripping acoustic folk, while Burn twists the “pop” knob on “For Every Drop” and gives it an extra blues turn for “Fire.” Most stunning and impressive, however, is Kitchell’s voice, filled with a confidence, assurance, and knowing well beyond her years. This is no child peeking into a world of wonder, but a fully formed talent expressing herself with the seductive purr of an experienced soul singer.

Best recording yet

I was anticipating this record highly. It's better than I could have hoped for. Kitchell is a 21st century Joni Mitchell (she actually played the vocalist in Herbie Hancock's touring band for River, which played all Joni Mitchell music). This album is surprising in that Kitchell is not interested really in showing off her incredible instrument--this is all about good songs, well written, finely crafted. For some reason, her tendency to use the lower registers of her voice on this album, combined with the good lyrics, reminds me a little of Johnny Cash. This is the sort of work that takes a few listens to sink in, which is to me the first sign of a top-notch work; the second is that a friend was over while I was playing this and she asked me to burn her a copy after listening for only a couple of minutes. An amazing singer with her best recording yet. Don't hesitate.

if its your style of music...

If this is your style of music, then yes you will love it all. If not you probably will not like it. But give it a try, its really good click [yes] if you agree

okay listen up

okay so this album is amazing-and i saw some people write a bad review just because it was too slow and they couldn't hear her-they have probably never heard this girl before. ALOT of people are into this kind of music so guys-if your not into it, why are you even looking this up and focusing on the negatives of this music? seriously.

A jazz-influenced singer/songwriter whose primary influences appear to be Joni Mitchell (circa Hejira and Mingus) and Rickie Lee Jones, Sonya Kitchell was born on March 1, 1989.
