If you haven’t discovered Ms. Maura yet, check out what the National Music Examiner has to say about “Reversible Lobotomy”.
“LA’s talented sassy mama, Ms. Maura is laying down some serious tracks on this EP. Proving that if you’re going to do an EP, you should cut the fat and give ’em your best, this lady proves to have the talent and skill to do just that. If you enjoy Shirley Bassey’s style, Adele’s throaty range, and some textured, complex musical arrangements that traverse through jazz/classical/world rhythms. Each track melds beautifully into the next and yet each packs a powerful punch unto itself. “I don’t wanna” exudes truth, beauty, and honesty expressed with a rich soulfulness. These 5 songs have been on repeat rotation since first hearing this EP for it’s a fresh, timeless, deep cohesive effort by a deserving to be called “Diva”, Ms. Maura.”
And an iTunes Review by IndieIsGood said:
“At first you think, “Oh, she’s a little like Annie Lennox,” then you think, “No, she’s sort of a torch singer,” then you think, “Whoa! That’s a BIG voice — like Etta James Big,” and then you just stop thinking and sit back and say, “It’s just GOOD.”
Your Pop Filter said:
“Ms. Maura’s voice has SO MUCH range and expression. The record is a tidy 5 tracks long, but these 5 tracks feel so much bigger. Throughout the first listen, the songs seem to vary a great deal, but something unspoken ties them together. Subsequent listens serve only to pull you deeper into her world… I heartily recommend that you buy it.”
