Kashena Sampson - Wild Heart

The UK is always getting album releases later than the US, especially in the country music market where many unknown acts either get released a year later or never at all. Luckily for the UK Wild HeartKashena Sampson's debut, has received an official UK release. We spoke to her last year, and if you didn't get it on import, now's your chance. And you really should because the Nashville singer has two things going for her: she can write a tune, and she can sing the shit out of those tunes.

The most immediate track is 'Greasy Spoon' which is funny, catchy, and based on a real-life Nashville breakfast eaterie. Delve further though and the real diamond amongst the gold here is 'She Shines', an unbelievable vocal carries this song of empowerment and self-belief. It's stunning. Elsewhere the title track is an understated beauty, 'Hold Me Close' is classic country, 'It's A Long Way Back' could be from the songbook of any of the greats, and so it goes on. Wild Heart is wonderful. It's music that needs to be supported and a record you need to own not stream.

Overall

A wonderful record, modern and classic, topped with stunning vocals and lived in lyrics.
