Track: Amana Melomé – Lock and Key (Contributed by K. Nikki)

My appreciation for jazzy vocals and lofty tones has been growing for the last couple of months due in part to music like this.

Soul/Jazz artist Amana Melome has released her lead single off her dually titled EP called Lock and Key, a track reminiscent of such artists as Corinne Bailey, Norah Jones and a little Estelle. As soon as the beat started, my body caught it, teleporting me to back to the 90’s for 3 minutes as I executed my best “Carlton Dance”. Not proud to admit that, but the point is the beat, wrapped in the sultry harmony of Amana, takes ahold of you, brings you on a funky, soulful ride through the clouds, and drops you back to the ground waiting for the next venture. Can’t wait to go on another voyage, i.e. patiently waiting for the EP.
