I must admit that I am not a professional when it comes to reviewing music. However I was asked to review Regina Marie's cover of Damien Rice's "Volcano"
The song, written by Damien George Rice, Brian Patrick Crosby, Dave Brian Geraghty, Paul Anthony Noonan, an Dominic Michael Phillips has a beautiful melody and intriguing lyrics. Damien Rice was accompanied by Lisa Hannigan for the performance of this song for his album "O" which included a melancholy cello.
While Rice an Hannigan certainly produced a beautiful sound, newcomer Regina Marie's cover certainly did the beautiful song justice. Regina Marie's striking voice is more haunting, aing to the melancholy melody and theme of the song. She punches a little harder at times, more powerfully accentuating the lyrics without ever losing the haunting sound.
I look forward to hearing more from Regina Marie as she develops as an artist.
