There were many female artists that released new and debut music this year including Superchick, Fireflight, BarlowGirl, Brooke Barrettsmith, Joy Whitlock, Worth Dying For and a few others. None impressed me more than the debut from newcomer Francesca Battistelli.
Bypassing the typical teen-angst that fills so many releases from younger artists, Francesca has filled her album with bright colors, joyful messages and positive outlooks. It’s a welcome change and you can feel the smiles come across in songs like “Beautiful, Beautiful,” “I’m Letting Go” and the title track. Inspired by everyone from the jazz greats her dad introduced her to as a kid, to contemporaries like John Mayer, Sara Bareilles and Nichole Nordeman, Francesca provides a hopeful debut that should continue into an encouraging musical career.
