Lauren Lapointe 'Superhero'

This is the third release from Savannah based singer-songwriter Lauren Lapointe. She delivers a strong country sound with clear vocals and a good production on the twelve songs included here. The themes run from man trouble and relationships to loving yourself and believing in tomorrow. Be your own best friend is a mantra that repeats across a number of the tracks. There is a tribute to Scotland (Scotland Tonight) and the question of living past lives; plus the radio friendly The Ghost of Elvis which is a highlight. I can sometimes hear Loretta Lynne within the vocal performance and this artist is something of a new talent to be reckoned with. Songs like Superhero, Heroine and Silent Hurricane only serve to support the case for her continued rise to greater media exposure.
