Love Don't Make You Juliet

by Brandi Shearer
 
Don't let the album art fool you -- this is a coffee shop jazz record, not an aggressive rock album like the cover shot suggests. Brandi Shearer has flirted with country and folk music in the past, but Love Don't Make You Juliet sits squarely within the Norah Jones realm, full of smoky-sultry vocals and cocktail hour influence.

Overview

Don't let the album art fool you -- this is a coffee shop jazz record, not an aggressive rock album like the cover shot suggests. Brandi Shearer has flirted with country and folk music in the past, but Love Don't Make You Juliet sits squarely within the Norah Jones realm, full of smoky-sultry vocals and cocktail hour influence. There are occasional diversions, of course; "Lovers and Freaks" takes root in the intersection of rock & roll and Southern blues, its chorus sounding something like Alannah Myles covering Ann Wilson, while ballads like "I Just Want You to Love Me" are more indebted to adult contemporary pop. Shearer's vocals link everything back to her jazz background, however, and the presence of producer Craig Street -- the knob-twiddler behind Norah Jones' Come Away with Me, perhaps the most visible contemporary jazz album of the early 21st century -- lends an elegant sheen to the material. Acoustic guitars and pianos are the norm here, making Love Don't Make You Juliet an earthy sort of jazz album, more appropriate for front-porch listening sessions than nightclub performances.
