The Way it Feels

Roxanne Potvin
The Way it Feels
The album is not her debut, but it feels like a coming out party for the Gatineau gal, what with the guest cameos and the busiest guitarist/producer around, Colin Linden. John Hiatt harmonizes on the snappiest of her compositions, “A Love That’s Simple.” Daniel Lanois turns up on the ballad “La Merveille,” croaking along en français. Though she’s dressed up like the blues, Potvin’s voice is more tender than most in that corner, and can benefit from a lower register to take the edge off. A couple songs near the end that veer towards Mariah-esque will piss off the listeners she’s just won over, yet may charm the masses who cry watching the Idols.
