Vocals to die for and top class country songs
Stephanie Layne is a singer/songwriter with lots of passion and power. Hailing from Minnesota Stephanie grew up on a ranch. Stephanie has a solid notion about what country music should be and that is projected throughout her music. Stephanie’s new EP was recorded at Nashville’s Blackbird Studios owned by none other than Martina and John McBride. Opening for artists such as Terri Clark and Sawyer Brown has helped Stephanie develop into a confident, strong female singer with plenty of back bone and charisma. This new EP is a mix of old and new, bluesy/rocky country and traditional country. There is something for everyone amongst the seven songs adorning this EP. Can’t Quit You is a rocky modern country song. Stephanie’s voice is defined and extremely powerful. The vocals are rather pleasing and a joy to listen to. What If I Do is a beautiful song with gentle vocals and a true country edge. This song has hit stamped all over it. Ain’t No Neighbors has touching lyrics that are so true to life. Many listeners will resonate with the words of this lovely country song. Hunker Down is a heavier country song with a bluesy/rocky feel. Stephanie’s vocals are really powerful and project well against the heavy backing music. Run Run Run is another glorious country song. Stephanie’s vocals are a little softer on this song, which has a catchy chorus. This song, again, has big hit written all over it. Finding Me is a more traditional country song. Stephanie’s vocals slip into a more relaxed mode on this excellent song. It would be great to hear someone like Vince Gill doing backing vocals on this track. The EP ends with a slow ballad that showcases Stephanie’s outstanding vocal skills. Someone Like Me is delicate and emotive. Stripped right back Stephanie’s vocals really get a chance to shine on this final offering. I like each and every one of the songs on this EP; they are all good in their own way and definitely deserve their place on this fantastic EP. Stephanie Layne has tons of potential and can only get better and better with time. She is already remarkably talented vocally and can effortlessly switch pace and style of music. Quite wonderful!
