Sonya Kitchell - Words Came Back to Me Review

by Morley Seaver

I was already impressed with the debut CD from this Massachusetts native…and then I discovered she's only 17! You would never know if by listening to her. She has a low, smokey voice that adds a lot of flavor to each and every song. She plays an adult contemporary (that's funny) kind of pop/rock/folk that flows along almost without notice unless you're really listening. Then you hear that it's quite a few notches over the ordinary. A point of comparison in sound might be a cross of Joni Mitchell, Maria Muldaur and Ani Difranco.

There are 12 cuts on Words Come Back To Me and they all work well. The opening cut "Let Me Go" shows that Kitchell has a soulful voice that really wraps around a note. "Train" features a funky guitar line and a lot of space for Kitchell to showcase her voice. The highlight of the record is the bluesy "Can't Get You Out of My Mind" which is close to Alicia Keys territory. The girl has a sense of humor too. The last cut, "Jerry" is an amusing piece about her little brother.

This is an amazing debut for this young artist. Without a doubt, she will be around for a while.
