Editorial Reviews

Review

Life isn't fair. That's what competing female country singers must think when they see and hear Shelly Rann perform for the first time. The talented singer-songwriter has a pure country voice that other singers can only dream about, and she puts her talent on full display with the new album "Afterwords."

The first cut "Lotta Love" is both sultry and smooth and showcases Rann's amazing voice. However, the title track "Afterwords" is even better, and the ballad is a beautiful representation of contemporary country music that can be enjoyed by hardcore country fans and mainstream audiences as well.

The upbeat "I'm All Over That" may be Rann's best chance for country radio chart hit, and the melodic chorus is both memorable and hummable. By far the best song on the album is the pleading "Unloved," which offers an authentic vocal performance by Shelly Rann and is later revisited at the end of the album.

The traditional country track "Like There's No Yesterday" is no doubt a popular live concert favorite, but it is the soulful "Somebody Else's Business" which is the album's biggest surprise and shows the artist's playful side. This barn burner is a smile-inducing charmer.

The 12 tracks that make up "Afterwords" show an artist that has the talent to make it to the top of the country music business. The key to success for Shelly Rann is finding the perfect song that will take her to the top, and the evidence presented here suggests that this is one artist who just might do it. --CountryChart.com

Shelly is the best singer I've ever heard, and her songwriting is top notch! --Jimmy Fortune (Country Music Hall of Fame)

5.0 out of 5 stars Shelly Rann music December 27, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Shelly Rann is an incredible singer and songwriter. When you listen to these songs you will have to buy them. The title song "Afterwords" is country music at its best and is not easy to get out of your mind. Every song on this album tells a story of life...our lives. Listen to each one. Shelly sings with heart, writes with soul, and is loved by young and old.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Songs, Great Vocal, Demo Quality February 6, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this album on the advice of reviews and buzz. First, let me say reviews can be deceiving. I liked most of the songs, loved Shelly's vocal talents (sounds like Faith on a few tracks), and thought the musicians playing on most of the tracks were excellent. What I found disappointing was the production. The artist really needs to surround herself with a better producer. For me, the album had an overall quality of a demo recording. Arrangements, harmonies and sweetening were below par for a product trying to make it in the mainstream. Would love to hear it again, produced by someone who would do it justice. I was really hoping for something better...maybe next time.
