Album Review: Cardiology

Title:  Cardiology (Amazon, iTunes)
Artist:  Sara Jackson-Holman (Official, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, BandCamp, Last.fm, SoundCloud)

Sara Jackson-Holman's Cardiology is a beautiful mix of hauntingly soulful vocals with modern pop/soul music ala Adele, Amy Winehouse, and Lily Allen.  Jackson-Holman has a powerful and elegant voice and it is her singing more than anything that propels this record.  Cardiology is the Portland, OR native’s sophomore full-length record and deals with the emotions of love and loss.  The record is a slow and determined collection of songs that produce a distinctive mood of somber solace through dark synth sounds, beats, and sparse, yet haunting, piano work.
