In My Mind
For sublime vocalist Heather Headley, her second studio album, In My Mind, the torrid follow-up to her Grammy nominated debut, This Is Who I Am, is the kind of soulful, sonically charged diary where lessons- learned meet musical purpose accomplished, grabbing the listener at its mesmerizing center of gravity, which just happens to emanate from the one and only Heather herself. "What you hear on this album is not only me, but my willingness to take you places even I've never been before." In other words, move over multi-award-nominated, critically acclaimed debut Ã¢Â€Â“ because the new one is everything you'd expect from the accomplished Heather, and more - a superb mix of soul, dancehall, exquisite balladry and fire breathing gospel that proves the agile Heather can not only wrap herself around a song, but also throw her arms around the entire recording process.
"I'll admit that making the first album, This Is Who I Am, was a little daunting, the whole process being an educational experience for me," says Heather. "However, on this one, I set out from the start to map out musically where I wanted to go. I knew what I wanted to hear. It's not enough to say 'I want to sound like me'. You have to know 'who' you are, and choose material and write lyrics that reflect that. No pun intended Ã¢Â€Â“ but in my mind I knew from the start, even from the first album - I couldn't sing what I didn't feel. What's great is that the feelings were just racing out of me. There's still so much I have to say."
