The soulful, spirited and vivacious songstress Paloma Faith takes “passionate” to another level with her newest album release, “A Perfect Contradiction.” Many say that her dynamic voice is reminiscent of Adele and Amy Winehouse. All true! However, one needs to add Aretha Franklin and Janis Joplin to the mix as well, making the combination of all. One of the most unique and self-assured voices out there today!
Proclaimed the “Best UK Solo Artist” at the 2014 Glamour Awards and having released two double platinum albums in the UK titled “Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful” and “Fall to Grace,” Paloma Faith is no stranger to amazing. In May of 2012, Paloma recorded a video for the “Out 4 Marriage” campaign, a group supporting the legislation of same-sex marriages in England and Wales. She stated that she was “proud to be backing the campaign.”
“A Perfect Contradiction” boasts collaborations with Pharrell Williams, John Legend and Raphael Saadiq. The album takes you on a journey of eras gone by, touched by a hint of the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s without sacrificing today’s dance and sound. Her single “Only Love Can Hurt Like This,” is one of those songs you just can’t listen to enough. Hours later you are still singing it in your mind, while at the same time you are still dancing to the sexy, upbeat track, “I Can’t Rely On You.”
“Trouble With My Baby,” “Taste My Own Tears,” “The Bigger You Love, The Harder You Fall” and “Mouth to Mouth” are all performed with the sense of “I Really Mean It” from deep within the artist’s heart. Each track on the album has a strong potential and distinct possibility of emerging a hit. Every song on “A Perfect Contradiction” is FUN!
Currently, Miss Faith is touring the U.S., entertaining audiences with songs from the album as well as mixed genre of pop, soul, rock and jazz.
Although her adorable, spunky appearance seems touched by a sense of innocence, don’t feel betrayed by that innocence when you listen to her powerful, seductive, yet funky huge voice explode with a volatile sound that you will never want to forget. I haven’t been this excited by a female artist in a very long time!
