North Carolina native Britt Nicole has jumped onto the scene with feet firmly planted in her faith while making a fun and energetic debut album that does anything but leave you wanting to stand still. The opener, "Holiday" is a favorite, immediately getting into the groove with Will Sayles' reverberated drumline and Nicole's trip hop lyrical masterpiece of what it is to be living in our culture and needing to take a break. "Set the World on Fire" combines aching lyrics and soaring vocals that encourage the listener that anything is possible with God. On "Sunshine Girl" Nicole's vocals are part of the reason why I compare her to a CCM Nelly Furtado, she's playfully girly and punk intermingled and has an airiness to her vocals that contrast well with the almost synth-like backing.

"Ready" is perfection, showing producer Tedd T.'s magic at work and diving into an anthem that will surely be adopted by this summer's concert goers. It's rare I enjoy anything this much in a pop category, normally they're pretty sickly sweet. Britt has not been this way, she has a certain edge and the mixture of production, vocals, lyrics and the instrumentation - everything-it has a chemistry that works. If you haven't picked up this album yet, do so, this is a 5 star gem for anyone who loves fresh pop/trip hop no matter your market, Britt Nicole is definitely ready to go onwards and upwards in her career.
