Born in the eye of the hurricane in Brooklyn, Bette Smith is close to the Olympus of divas. The voice, the songwriter, the personality and the creative intelligence are on her side, the streets rock'n'roll and the suburban funk are sifted by the soul of an outstanding Bette Smith. The singer's second album, where the omnipresent guitars run through the entire album with an electrifying rhythmic orchestration and some horns and strings touches put everything in the best place. Ruf Records blesses this new star that we have to let her shine.
