Kelly Moneymaker ramps up the soul with ‘Stone’ LP

It’s always intriguing when an artist is labelled as ‘the new this’ or ‘the next that’ – particularly when the artists they’re been compared to are all time greats in their genre. So it was with some trepidation that I clicked PLAY on the latest album from Kelly Moneymaker – ‘the next Aretha Franklin/Tina Turner/Bonnie Rait’.

Incredibly though, those concerns were unfounded. Kelly Moneymaker truly does have a powerhouse voice, one which she lends to thirteen stellar soul and gospel tracks for new album ‘Stone’.

Granted, there’s no replacing the greats mentioned above – nobody can match them. But the fact that this release boasts tracks which you can fully imagine being included on those artists’ classic albums is a compliment in itself.
