Released: Jul 2007
Sara Bareilles joins the ranks of such assured, precocious newcomers as Rachael Yamagata and Brandi Carlile. Bareilles has learned from Fiona Apple, but she stabilizes her sensitive/troubled alternative singer-songwriter template with a touch of soul and a dollop of Sarah McLachlan. Little Voice is full of solid songs that belong on the radio -- "Morningside," "Bottle It Up," "One Sweet Love," "Love On the Rocks" and (best of all) the hey-world-here-I-come career anthem "Vegas." Speaking of radios, who can resist the little transistor model that Bareilles is holding on the album cover?
