Because I Can

Daphne Willis

Because I Can

Vanguard Records

Daphne Willis considers Because I Can to be her magnum opus.  She pushed herself harder on this album than ever before and it really does show.  You may have never heard of Daphne Willis, but I’m pretty sure that after Because I Can hits shelves you will.  It’s sensible, upbeat and incredibly fun and shows a surprising depth of talent for this new young artist.  Her styles range throughout her newest twelve track full length, from country-esque ballads to funky, horn and brass infused dance numbers.  Her voice works as an excellent complement the variety of genres and styles she represents, changing in both tone and quality to match each track.  While Because I Can would technically be referred to as pop, I would not let that deter you.  The pop-sensibility present is an example of the best her genre can offer (and others).

Released:  4/19/2011
