Craig Gurwich—backing vocals
R. Asteria, D. Maglerek, and C. Gurwich.
Renée Asteria's debut seems very relaxed and its many influences coexist happily. Her smooth vocals and the music mesh well. The reggae stylings of "Sweet Ben" come across as natural and not forced. "Cry of Ecstasy" captures the joy and pain of being in love. It doesn't resort to anything exaggerated and its funky underpinnings work well. "Open Mind" is a pretty ode to well, open-mindedness. Asteria sings beautifully as ever. She's clearly a real talent. (email@example.com)
