Erin Hunt - Meet Me In The Middle
A dynamic soul singer from Ontario, Canada, eriN hunt recently released her first EP 'Meet Me In The Middle'. It's earthy, jazzy and funky and the six tracks serve as a great showcase for her voice - sometimes she's crystal clear, otherwise you'd swear she was a towering soul queen who's been smoking cigarillos for 30 years.
The grooving nature of the EP is difficult not to sway to - it's balanced by small touches for variety, like the Latin percussion on "If You Believe In Me" or the weighty organ flourishes of "The Woman I Am" with the vocals flowing like silk over the top. She has got that essential soul quality - the ability to sing about love and loss with real, touching emotion rather than 'standard fare' cliches and cheese. The songs are all distinctly different from one another, and the whole thing flows like honey.
All in all, it's a nice change from synth-driven R&B. 'Meet Me In The Middle' brings forth images of dimly-lit jazz clubs, late night encounters and a little sultry Latin flavour throughout. If you're a soul fan, you'll find this refreshing and satisfying. And if you're not? You might well be by the end of the record.
