Barbara Leah Meyer
This European-based Canadian vocalist presents an emotion-laden collection of love songs with a pretty much straightahead delivery. She conveys a sultry, albeit near threatening message in "Get Out Of Town" and sings a stunning "Blame It On My Youth." She also romps through "I'm Old Fashioned" and "That's All." Meyer is obviously well trained, with a particularly appealing lower register. Her choice of standards, and use of her assorted musicians, especially bassist Andre Lachance, are impeccable.
