This is Ro-Montee's debut album and judging by the sound was recorded on the tightest of budgets. The CD includes only four tracks, one of which is a short one minute poem. As for the other three tracks Ro-Montee admits to being a little Tina Turner-ish (my wife said Chaka Khan but let's be honest, either is good!). And stylistically reminds me of much of the soul/disco music of the late '70s and early '80s. Ro-Montee has been singing since the age of four and on this album it shows, whilst some of her backing singers are a bit pitchy Ro-Montee never misses a note and her huge vocal talent shines through. Here's hoping a full album, and a bigger production budget, come soon.
