Amarachi

All or Nothing

Review by Gary Hill

This set is made up of acoustic rockers with the powerful female vocal performance of Amarachi. The vocals are the real selling point here. This is an effective set. There’s no question about that. It has some range to it.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2015  Volume 1 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Certified Criminal

This acoustic rocker is catchy and delivered with a lot of passion. It’s a great tune and an excellent opener.

I'll Be Ok
There are no huge changes here, but this energetic number has a strong vocal performance and some tasty guitar work.
My Man

Although this is similar in its acoustic rock style, there is some jazz in the mix on this tune. It’s another accessible and effective piece.

Things You Do
There are some world music elements built into the melody here. Otherwise, this is a folk rocking tune quite similar to the rest of the music here.
Killing Me Softly-
I like the musical groove here. The vocal performance has a moment or two where she seems to get a little out of control – and not necessarily in a good way. Beyond that, though, this is right up to par with the rest of the set. Really, it’s just a minor issue, anyway.
Bye Bye, Good Bye

The closer continues the themes while not feeling repetitive. The vocal arrangement has multiple layers, and there are hints of jazz here.
