Urban Blues & Soul/Funky Pop
July 15th, 2016.
My first impression when listening to Mighty, the first song in this 9-track album was, ‘This is new and good. Catchy, too!’ On the secular side, her voice can be likened to that of Christina Aguilera, and on the Christian side, some of her songs are somewhat similar to Jamie Grace’s. There’s an ‘oldies’ quality to it, and intertwined with jazz, it presents a unique urban style of soul and pop that is pleasantly alluring. This brand of Christian music isn’t done enough, and I’m of the opinion that there should be more of it. For anyone with a heart for soulful music, looking for a quality that’s uplifting, Shae’s Mighty will be a refreshing discovery!
While all the songs are lovely, look out for: Mighty, Wolves, and See Ya Soon.
Overall, this is a heartfelt, spirit-lifting album. And, while Beckah Shae isn’t new in the industry, for she’s been singing for the past ten years, she’s certainly an artist to look out for.
