5. Southern Drawl

 

It is always a particular pleasure to report about young artists who are just beginning their careers, like in this case of Arista Manning.

The 22-year-old farmer's daughter from Kentucky sang in a church choir in her childhood, then later took part in local talent shows and began recording demos at the age of 18. At the same time, she tried to establish contacts in the country labels in Nashville. In addition to her studies at Murray State University (public relations and journalism), she continued her music career and released her debut album in September 2016 in the form of an EP containing five self-composed songs. A video for the resulting single "Southern Drawl" was added, which brought the artist's attention to numerous American radio stations.

Due to the consistently brisk tempos, the work appears to be from a single source, only the use of stringed instruments in "Wrapped Up In Me" and the rocking touch in "Southern Drawl" are a bit out of the ordinary, without changing the stylistic direction significantly.

In terms of content, the arc of belief and spirituality spans the enjoyment of the moment and life in the here and now.

Arista Manning's powerful and impressive voice is convincing in all of the pieces.

It is to be hoped that this EP will soon be followed by a full album which will help the young singer achieve the success she deserves.
