Among The Gods by Stephanie Greaves
Reviewed by Stella Redburn
This is the debut album, actually released in 2014 by a Croydon-based singer/songwriter. It certainly offers an intriguing variety of styles, all bound together by Stephanie's attractive voice with some tight vocal harmony backings and small band accompaniment. Ms Greaves explores classic gospel, reggae, pop, salsa and house and although some styles work better than others, when she locks into some reggae on "Morning Praise" and "Bless" she really sparkles. My favourite cut is probably the title track with its satisfying gospel harmony sound. Not all the tracks kept my interest, however, and I'm not sure that including three reprises is really justified. But this is still a pretty good calling card to leave with Joe Public.

A refreshing debut album with a pleasant blend of reggae, praise & worship and a pinch of jazz and a touch of Salsa.
