Washington, DC singer-songwriter reveals a rich emotional template.
Washington, DC singer-songwriter, guitarist/pianist Laura Tsaggaris’s Keep Talking. reveals a rich emotional template. Opener “Warning Signs” melds Sam Clowney’s driving electric guitar and the confession, “I could’ve told you you’d fall for the lines, mine them for hope and then toss them aside.” The ‘60s boy- band feel of “Out of My Mind” precedes “Roads”, co-written by Townshend, a piano-driven ballad that flanks electric guitar. “I’ve paved these roads to drive smooth as my hand runs over you,” commands Tsaggaris.
“Go and Do Everything (Again)” imprints Avril Lavigne and borders punk imploying the luscious hook, “but, is this all another call to what you’ll never be anyway?”
Titler: kitschy “Keep Talking” spawns spunky horn arrangements (Carluzzo/Schreier) contrasting the cocky vocal rant strapped to suspensions, “Under The Gun.” “Get Yourself Right” spins dreamy, redemptive ode while “Catastrophic” streams melodica passages waltzing through a key-change forest.- commingling with Tsaggaris’s frothy delivery.
