Warm melodies, vivid imagery, and skillful musicianship are the order of the day with this week’s Songs You Should Hear. The women featured below each bring a unique, soulful voice to the table — and we can’t get enough!
Artist: Angela Wright
Song: Can’t Do That
Why You Should Hear It: A thundering, tribal drumbeat provides a bouncy groove to this anguished tale about struggling to move on. The story is brought to life by Wright’s warm, soulful melody, which brilliantly illustrates the conflict between staying true and letting go.
Artist: Arletta Marie
Why You Should Hear It: If you like gritty blues guitars, hypnotic rhythms, and showstopping vocals, look no further. This is a timeless, dynamic offering that will draw you in and keep you hooked.
Why You Should Hear It: If this song sounds familiar, that’s because it’s a cover of The Weeknd’s “Sacrifice,” from his most recent album, Dawn FM. This version, however, is re-imagined as a poignant ballad complete with a beautifully-layered, wintry ambiance.
