Before purchasing 'Loft music' I had come to love Thea's 'Avalanche' and 'Songs from the Gutter'.
She is an outstanding talent and her albums have been subject to rave reviews of her songwriting abilities. To me, it is this songwriting skill that shines through on the other albums, to the point that it almost eclipses all else.
'Loft Music', however, showcases her fantastically mature voice, as she sings songs that we are already familiar with. I particularly love her renditions of 'Crazy Love' (Van Morrison) and 'Ever Fallen in Love with Someone' (Buzzcocks).
Because she's singing these songs in such a different way to her own material, it is pretty hard to recognise her voice at all.
A must for all Thea fans, if only to give a glimpse of another side of her abilities, and a must for any who appreciate good quality, heartfelt music.
