The Trouble and the Truth

The Trouble and the Truth
There is a maturity in Costelo’s voice and approach that is disarming in a debut. When she extends the “I” in “Pale Moon” into three and four notes, it has the heartiness of someone delighting in finally getting her song out there. Costelo is an alto who can reach higher if needed, but does so sparingly. Some ubiquitous locals like Charles Austin, Al Tuck, Andrew Glencross and Lukas Pearse lend support where needed. “Architect of Fashion” is striking from the get-go with what sounds like pots and pans over a mellotron. Her piano playing is understated and suits her voice. Costelo is like Diana Krall, except with a personality.
