About the Album
Beer has just released her debut EP, As She Pleases. The seven track collection features two previously-released tracks “Dead” and “Say it To My Face.” Fans will get an intimate glimpse into the singer’s world with her honest lyrics that all revolve around the fact that she is a young woman that knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to fight for it. Beer has a sexy dusky voice and plenty of vocal control to hit the notes and embellish them with cleaver ornaments and bluesy turns. Her songwriting is strong and chalked full of wit well past her years and she exudes plenty of confidence.
Our Favorite Track
Our favorite song is “Dead.” Set to a medium tempo pulse, Beer’s voice is out in the open and we can hear all the subtleties. Her soulful sexy approach to the melody is first-rate. The lyrics are pleasing and are easily relatable. Her vocal range is showcased, the wide interval jumps are done with control and authority. The interlude is enjoyable, giving the song a little break with a mini drop at the end. Beer does not complicate things, she keeps things simple and focused on her lyrics and vocal delivery of the melody. Simply beautiful!
Beer is a quality singer. At only eighteen, she already has excellent vibrato control, nice riffs, controlled legato runs and a wide vocal range. The future will find her building her fairytale in ways that can only be imagined, her sky is the limit and Beer has the pipes to go where she wants and the attitude to do it the way she wants. You go girl!
