Naomi Psalm "Stare" CD review By: Steve Minotti

Naomi Psalm "Stare"  
Cd Review By: Steve Minotti

    It all started when I posted in a local facebook group page that I was looking for acts to showcase at Kevro Art Bar in Delray Beach Florida. I received an e-mail from a lady in Boise Idaho named Naomi said she would be in town and would like to showcase her new EP "Stare" and would appreciate any help in getting other shows. She told me that we had a friend in common Rob Rice who taught her how to play guitar when she was a little girl living in South Florida .....Now I met Rob through my bass player Chris Korzen. Chris hooked Rob up with a local Band Underground Junction whom he played bass with for a short time with my good friend Glenn Goss and Steven Bauer of Scareface fame...Rob is a great bass player so I took the time to check her music out and I'm glad I did. 
     The first song I came across was clever piece of work titled "Already Hit Send" and I think this is the button that everyone in the world of texting has pushed and regretted!!! This Cd is well produced with strong vocals and nice instrumentation through out the whole EP.

     The next one is a song that is a little darker titled "Ink" this was written about Naomi's brother and a personal tragedy she had gone through as she told us in an interview on with Jacqueline Jax and myself. She was also in town for a video shoot in Miami at the old Miami Marine Stadium for this tune on a rainy and cold weekend in South Florida and a great back drop for this tribute to her brother. We are looking forward for its release at A.V.A.Radio.

      Last but not least is a song titled "Listen" a song Naomi said was a old song she revamped from her archive of songs and just as the title suggests listen to this song it's inspiring lyrics and great melody will hook you for sure and my personal favorite. Again production by Dammien "Dame" Alexander is outstanding.

       If there is a negative to this Cd is there is not enough tracks on it and we look forward to her full length Cd in 2012.. "Stare" by Naomi Psalm is available on iTunes and through her website link above.
