Meet the world's next Pop Star. Her name is Alicia "Ya Yah" Townsend. It's been awhile since I've found a local artist that has the "X" factor. Townsend embodies charmisa, style and an amazing voice.
Her latest video, "Automagic" is a flirty song that engages you and makes you want to hear more. When I first heard the song, I couldn't stop singing it and humming it to myself. What Alicia Townsend does on "Automagic" is bring a contemporary feeling of ambivalence and vehemence to her singing. She deploys her deep knowledge of the soul tradition to make her declarations both firm and timely.
She's beyond amazing...she's our future in music. And, we would love to hear what you think. Does she have what it takes?
