‘Lioness’ is the highly anticipated Sophomore album from Texas-based K. Avett and the blend of styles across this ten track offering works well with Ms Avett’s voice that has sass and swagger in equal measure – there are touches of N’Dambi in places but she has her own distinctive tone. The organic, jazzy soul of ‘Feelin Good’ brings to mind early Ledisi, Noel Gourdin guests on the superb, funky edged ‘Soldier’, the mellow ‘What Are We Here For’ is a blissful mid-tempo gem while ‘Dame Mas’ and ‘Time Won’t wait’ are sumptuous beat ballads that remind, musically of mid 70s Isleys at their most laid back: warm summery grooves with bubbling percussion and sweet riffs. ‘Think I Had Enough’ has an infectious, lilting dance groove while ‘Down’ and ‘Lioness’ come closer to contemporary R&B but with an indie edge. Very good album.
