Artist: Franka De Mille

CD: "Bridge the Roads"

Label: Self Released


On her strong debut Franka De Mille finds a comfortable home somewhere between singer-songwriter folk and baroque pop.

The songs on "Bridge the Roads" have a humble soul and are more than occasionally melancholy. This down-to-earthness is all well and good, and is sure to appeal to fans of the singer-songwriter side of the equation, but I think De Mille shines most when the instrumentation is more complex (as on "So Long" and "Gare du Nord", my favorite track found on this CD). Franka has a good voice, but the additional instruments seems to counterpoint her vocal stylings in a way that the more simple songs do not.

"Bridge the Roads" is an intriguing debut, and my gut tells me that we're just hearing the beginning of Franka De Mille.
