Luscious Lira gives you all her love - All Lira's love

2006-03-29 18:16

From the moment the yearning "Sad" rubs itself gently up against your eardrums, you're seduced by the fact that Lira's debut release avoids the bump 'n grind "let's get low down and dirty" bent of so much contemporary f**k fuelled R&B.

While these intimate and well-crafted songs are certainly "bedroom-friendly", the magnitude of Lira's mesmerising talent transcends mere "love jams". As a singer she's equally at home on breezy pop flavours ("All My Love"), head nodding, finger clicking, bass heavy club jams ("What U Want"), smouldering smooth jazzy ballads ("Dream") and sassy urban soul moods ("Wanna Be Loved By You", "Only Me").

Combining the understated allure of Sade with the soul of Randy Crawford and the sassy street strut of Shakatak, All My Love takes the listener on a timeless journey to the intersection where old school soul meets nu-urban contemporary groove.

Oh, and she just happens to be South African too.

All My Love is an effortlessly smooth and soulful selection of slow burning R&B soaked jams that seduces the senses with a laid-back, wistful mid-tempo set of sophisticated late night listening grooves.
