The new album from Jessi Teich is no longer receiving praise from solely within the United States, with this latest review coming from keysandchords.com out of Belgium.
Here is the translated version:
Jessi Teich: TWISTED SOUL
A masterful blend of jazz, blues and soul as Jessi Teich describes itself like her new album ‘Twisted Soul’ and what can we do then to add because she has to equal 100%. For the recording of this album drew this in Philly-based singer-songwriter to Madame Freak Studi in Paris. After a few difficult moments in her life as the process of separation of her parents or the loss of her voice is this Jessi Teich in a new turning point in her career and life.
Love and broken hearts are but a few items which Jessi can write smoothly and that weerspigelt smoothly into this album. In her home country she is often compared to Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan and Fiona Apple. When she writes her songs is as if her emotions run wild, and therefore there is so much depth to her songs.
ON this’ Twisted Soul ‘also found two covers there like’ Cry Me A River “by Justin Timberlake but also” Clap Hands “Master Tom Waits. Her own repertoire is varied as the ‘poppy’ ‘Think You Do’ with some French influences such as the accordion of Laurent Derache. On the opening track ‘The Haunting’ Jessie Teich choose again for her jazzy songs.
The support of one of the top pianists like Thierry Maillard do her powerful voice extra climb emotive heights. Also title track ‘Twisted Soul’ is a song she tries to maintain the togetherness between jazz and pop, as well as the dreamy sung ‘Lucid Lover’, a song with hit potential.
A well-received introduction to this Jessi Teich and its ‘Twisted Soul’ and ‘Someday’ I will also sometimes live can hear. Retrieval of the power in her voice is also part of the process of liberation that she can experience with this album.
