Sandy Zio
All That I Am

Sandy Zio's debut arrives and her sound is fresh and enjoyable. Zio has lived a little before making her debut and it shows in her songwriting maturity and easy vocal cool. The title song is as lovely as the first day of spring, Zio's charismatic vocal over a memorable tune.

"Someone To Love" is a ballad that avoids easy cliché and would sound great on the radio. She covers the Carpenters "We've Only Just Begun" and gives it a modern sheen, while retaining the originals' sensibility. Zio's vocals are easy on the ear. "Sister Madelene" is funky and brings a necessary change of pace. Zio handles it with great spirit. Her album is a great listen.
