[CLOSED] Album review + GIVEAWAY: Rebecca Roubion ‘Forests’ EP

(Disclaimer: I was provided a link to the album in order to review. The digital copy of the giveaway album will be e-mailed directly to the winner by the PR company. I was not compensated in any way for this review and all opinions are my own.)

Rebecca Roubion is one of those artists who is typically labeled as indie-pop, but her folk, soul and jazz influences make her music something a little more than your typical lightweight pop album. If you’re not yet familiar with her, you need to be: for fans of similar artists like Sara Bareilles and Norah Jones, Rebecca is the next big thing.

The Nashville, Tennessee-based songbird seamlessly fuses smooth piano ballads with a soulful, syrupy voice reminiscent of fellow Dixieland singers like Eva Cassidy. After successfully launching her debut EP Fields in the fall of 2012 via Kickstarter, Roubion returns this spring with the twin EP Forests.

Forests picks up where Fields left off, with Roubion switching easily between the understated arrangements of ‘Cripple Me’ and the peppier piano pop of ‘Not Sure Yet’. This is the sort of album you put on for brunch with friends or for an evening of relaxing, turning off the phone and curling up with a cup of tea and a stack of magazines!

Rebecca recently released this video for her single ‘Love Me Now’, which expertly captures Rebecca’s creative soul and all of the whimsical, giddy emotion of falling in love. Take a listen and just try not to picture this as the theme to a romantic comedy starring Rachel McAdams or Zooey Deschanel!
