  •  The Independent Musicians CD Reviews

    Welcome to the EvO:R Independent CD Reviews Section.
    I would like to take a few minutes to introduce ourselves to everyone. The EvO:R review section features reviews from various independent musicians that submit material for our consideration.

    I wanted to let you know a little about our review teams collective thoughts on music. It's important to let the people we review know what we think of their music and how we listened to their creations.

    We hold nothing back! The team has been instructed to be honest and respectful of all CD's reviewed.

     Heart Strings
    by
    Irena Hart
    Reviewed by: Rory Richardson
    Edited by: Cyrus Rhodes

    About the Artist
    This is Hart’s second release entitled “Heart Strings” released in 2011 and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. This is one Connecticut artist that brings to the table effective songwriting coupled with a passionate vocal delivery and amazing dance sound. Musical flavors presented: Contemporary Pop, Singer/Songwriter. Modern Dance.

    The opening track "Heart Strings” sets the stage rather well for this CD. It was a melodic intro piece that gently took me by the hand and stuck in my head and had me eager for what lied ahead. All in all the whole CD is brilliantly delivered via Gold Standard Musicianship and an impressive vocal front (vocals and visuals). Musical overtones reminded me a bit of Taylor Dane, Madonna, Alicia Keys. There are some fantastic pieces on this CD which gives this musical production a polished and catchy vibe. Hart’s vocal presence works very well track for track, and her band just grooves together. The beats and rhythmic sampling are perfect for this genera. The meanings of these songs is pretty straight forward – but full of passion and priceless wisdom at the same time. She clearly has all the singer/songwriter qualities needed to gravitate a fan base.

    Favorite piece on the CD is a toss up between “Deeper Everyday” and “Nothing to Give You.”

    Conclusion:
    This CD will simply make your day a brighter place with songs of love and hope. But they are like a drug and like the title implies it will tug on your heart string with truthful and honest subject matter. The strong suit of Hart is clearly her Euro sex appeal. At the end of the CD you will find yourself inspired, invigorated and in the mood to open up your heart and let her in.
    Rating:
    10 star rating average – This CD gets 8.5 stars
