Florence Rawlings – A Fool in Love

Though on the same label as Katie Melua, Florence Rawlings has more in common with the watered down blues of Joss Stone or Nell Bryden than the fey strums of her labelmate.

It’s not as hugely awful as the more discernable music love may think, with Rawlings certainly having the voice to grab a fair share of the Radio 2 audience’s attention.

There’s no originality though, and it’s a jazz that boils down to credit crunch dinner party – all prawns from Iceland and booze from Lidl. Nothing like the sort of Little Richard and Gladys Knight her hopeful PR compares her too, but harmless enough to stem the urge to rip your ears off.

As middle of the road as a dead hedgehog.
