Elle Gomes: Acoustic Movement

I can't cease to stop mentioning how wonderful it is to have young adults release music that has substance now-a-days when the market is flooded with a lot of cookie cutter nonsense that has no lyrical value. "Beantown" has the rights to brag about singer-songwriter Elle Gomes, who currently is a student at Berklee College of Music majoring in songwriting. After listening to the Acoustic Movement EP she released on August 1st, and the fact that she is of Cape Verdean descent, it sounds to me that her style is influenced by the late great Cesaria Evora.

"Gravity" is the single she is pushing, but I was more drawn to "Artificial Love (Not Anymore)", which she is expressive of how she seeks to find real love. Her rich vocals and arrangements are proven to show she has reason to have graced stages with the likes of Lalah Hathaway, George Clinton, Regina Carter and other notable entertainers. Surprisingly, she's offering listeners the chance to get this great piece of work for free. Just make sure you all help give a boost to her career by purchasing later projects. Let's keep her around for awhile.
