Wonderful Life
It's been four years since her last release, but like a fine bottle of red wine, Luna Paige (formerly Luna), just gets better with age. Wonderful Life is an appetising musical blend of well-rounded adult contemporary singer songwriter flavours with a solid melodic structure supported by earthy undertones.

The Cape songbird signposts her eclectic range of influences from the start, exploring an Eastern feel on album opener "Sunday in Japan". This haunting indie-folk pop gem features singer songwriter Chris Chameleon doing what he does best: pushing his charismatic high-pitched vocals to the limit. Later, on "Right Kind of Love" she duets with Delta Blues front man and guitarist, Gerald Clark for a smouldering bluesy, folk rock ballad about falling in love. It's a playfully sexy album centrepiece that will definitely get you and your better half in the mood for... the right kind of love!

Luna also shows off her versatility collaborating with amateur farm choristers, the Bellevue Choir, to produce activist song "New Love" which is the theme song for her non-profit organisation The New Love Foundation. Nothing compares to good old fashioned choir vocals to get those emotions (donations) flowing!

Collaborations aside, Luna proves that she can stand firmly on her own musical feet, bewitching on sultry, strong 'n sensitive ballads "Green Eyes", "Restless Soul" and the country-rocker "You're Sunshine" which are guaranteed to put a smile on the faces of fans of femme fatales such as Tori Amos and Fiona Apple.

South Africa's best kept singer songwriter secret gives fans of bluesy, folk rock ballads about falling in love their fix.
