"Volcanoes live inside me" sings Nadia Kazmi on her debut album and it's a boast she can live up to. Her vocals are stunning and assured like those of a young P.J
"Mother" intones 'Mother I am a killer' with solemn integrity. The drama of the lyrics is matched by music that crests and falls with intent. "Tyranny of the Heart"
gets funky and Kazmi carries it in her stride. Her vocals are powerful in a soulful and instantly engaging way. "The Blues Always Bleed Red" is of course bluesy and
she seems at home with this kind of music too. Her voice is at its fiery though not exaggerated best. Her debut comes firing on all cylinders and should help her establish
herself as a force to be reckoned with.
