      Solo album from Jessica Harp

      After listening to The Wreckers, a duo consisting of Michelle Branch and Jessica Harp, I decided to check out Jessica's solo music, seeing as I already have Michelle's. Jessica has released one solo studio album, A Woman Needs, which came out in 2010. The CD, which is only available on import, was quite expensive on Amazon so I broke my usual rule and went for the mp3 version which was only £7.49, saving even more by purchasing the Sugababes' Best of the Bs album at the same time at a total cost of only £10 (this special offer is still on at Amazon at the time of writing).

      Jessica Harp was the 'country' half of The Wreckers, and as someone who isn't a particular fan of country music, I probably wouldn't have bought it if it wasn't for the fact I liked The Wreckers' music so much. However, my fears were allayed as though this album is certainly more 'country' sounding than the duo's material, it's close enough to pop to appeal to me.

      Most of the songs on the album are about love in all its guises, from the joy of finding a "Boy Like Me" to the sadness of "Letting Go". Jessica comes across as a bit of a girl next door on such tracks as Homemade Love and Good Enough For Me, which are down to earth and unpretentious. Some tracks can be a little sentimental, such as Love Letter, but others see Jessica facing heartbreak with an upbeat attitude, such as Breakup Song. The only non-love song on the album is the title track, which sees Jessica singing about freedom and finding her own way. The singer has a sweet voice and the tracks are pleasant country-pop songs, generally more upbeat than you might expect from the subject matter.

      This is a good album, not as memorable or distinctive as The Wreckers' music or indeed Michelle Branch's, but it is well produced, consistent and pleasant to listen to. Recommended for anyone who likes a bit of country pop.
