Niecie - Beyond The Surface

Niecie is a powerhouse to say the least. Her influences are diverse as the day is long but she never strays from the roots of blues and R&B. I fully believe that should she desire to do so, Niecie could literally bring down the house. Her voice is every bit that powerful. Beyond the Surface contains only two of Niecie's original tunes but they show her talents as a songwriter as well as a performer. She has worked around the globe and with the best performers in the business and this release is no different. The musicianship is nothing short of flawless and the vocals are dynamic and powerful. Niecie's tone changes effortlessly from tune to tune, making this another one of those pieces that will not be put in a box. Comparisons to past giants, while they are well deserved, do not do the lady justice. She is in no way copying anyone's style but has melded that multitude of influences into her own unique sound. One might hear the driving roar of a Janis Joplin in one line only to be followed by a sweet gentleness in the next. Niecie is well worth more than a single good listen. It is evident in her delivery that this woman has been around the block more than once and is not simply mouthing good covers. She is the real deal to be sure. What you see and what you hear is what you get…no questions asked. Beyond The Surface draws a line in the sand from the very beginning. She arouses strong feelings in her listeners and you will find that where her music is concerned, you will either love it or quite the opposite. As for me, I found Beyond the Surface to be unique on so many levels…something that, while I might not play it daily, it will remain close to my player and receive more than its fair share of airplay. - Bill Wilson
