Armor On by Dawn Richard
Released: Mar 2012
Label: Our Dawn Entertainment / Cheartbreaker Music Group
Dawn Richard was first discovered via Diddy's Making the Band 2 reality series, and then recruited for slickly packaged groups like Danity Kane and Diddy-Dirty Money. Few thought she was capable of an indie record like Armor On. What impresses isn't the mixed bag of songs like "Bombs," "Change" and "Scripture," nor the vogue-ish electronic beats, but the album's rawness. Richard really sounds like she's rocking in a basement studio, and she exudes an incredible presence. And when it climaxes in the EDM rager "Faith," you can't help but think she has the makings of solo stardom.
