by Dia Frampton
Released: Dec 2011
Label: Universal Motown Records Group
Abandoning the emo-pop angst of sister band Meg & Dia, The Voice runner-up Frampton instead delivers a solo debut that showcases the kind of artist the show wants to foster: compelling, self-possessed, but with a malleable talent. Red is stylistically scattered, but charmingly so: Guests include Kid Cudi and Blake Shelton; tracks glide from rolling alt-country to shimmering disco, from straight-up Nashville pop to coffee-shop acoustic delivered with a femme fatale swagger (the surprising "Bullseye"). Frampton's velvety, torch-kissed voice molds to every inch of this impressive range.
