Artist: Courtney Ariel
CD: Self-Titled EP
Home: San Diego, California
Quote: "Her vocals are what stand out most about each song, particularly on the final, piano-laden track 'Dream Writer.'"
By Peter Braidis
Courtney Ariel is a singer/songwriter from San Diego by way of Atlanta and has a mix of warm styles that show on each of the three tracks on her self-titled EP. The songs are predominantly acoustic, with each track accenting her voice. Her vocals are what stand out most about each song, particularly on the final, piano-laden track "Dream Writer." "Cheaters" is a mellow number with some subtle strings and the catchiest of the material, is the opener "Cherry Sunshine."
The main problem here is that it's all a little too coffeehouse or bookstore and a little safe. However, this EP is a promising start, and maybe Courtney can take some chances on a full length effort.
