In the current musical environment there are fewer and fewer credible artists who not only write their own songs, but also sing them well. Beulah defies this trend with her debut album "Mabel And I". Her lyrics are conscientious and heart-felt, her voice delicate and melodious, and the harmonies she includes in such tracks as "I Can't Wait" and "Leaving Home" are touchingly subtle and almost haunting. The songs are taken from her own life experiences growing up in the Peak District, and the maturity of her writing, considering that she is only 24 years old, is truly remarkable. Much of her music has a hint of folk music about it and yet there is so much variety in this album which showcases her genuine musical talent. The soulful "Nevermore" is preceded by the upbeat and catchy "Sweet Kinda' Something", showing that Beulah's talent does not simply rest with ballads, but extends to more rhythmic-based songs as well. Nevertheless, it is undeniable that the more emotional, sparsely accompanied songs are the most affecting, and where the uniqueness and purity of Beulah's sensational voice are most discernable. Every song has something different to offer, something different to relate to, and this album is surely destined for great success. Heralded as the new Norah Jones, the fact that this is Beulah's debut album means there are very exciting times ahead.
