JOANNA COOKE - SINGLE REVIEW

Joanna Cooke - He's My Boy 
Joanna Cooke - He's My Baby

Release Date: Out Now

Plymouth based songstress Joanna Cooke is a busy lady, just look at that gig list over the next month!? That's always a sign of someone who loves what they do, in my book, and that tends to set them up to be better than most. In amongst all that gigging, Cooke has had time to record an EP and from that EP comes new single 'He's My Boy' which is a piano based ballad with deep soul. Fans of Adele, Amy Winehouse, Alicia Keys or John Legend will love this and although the temptation is to turn the lights down low and get romantic to this tune, there is more bite and attitude here than just a simple bonking ballad. Indeed, when a beat kicks in around the three minute mark the song is transported in to a whole new space - from chill out room to main dance floor - before the song plays out with those simple piano notes and finger clicks. Cooke is a talented musician, no doubt, a wonderful singer, no diggity, but most importantly she can hang a song together wonderfully as well so, y'know, watch out. She's coming for you.
