Raise My Voice is an album of 12 songs - only one of which I didn't write. It's soulful and deep and I think it's better than the last one. (I know, we always think that). Songs range from anthemic ("I Will Raise My Voice") to smoldering sass ("Say My Name" "You Gonna Regret Losing Me") to sweet smoothness ("It's So Good") to stank groove ("I Ain't Never") There's even one called "Hootchie Mama" for Pete's sake.
