To Kiss You - Tahni Handal

Tahni Handal is a smooth singing songwriter from Texas that has the gift of putting story to song and delivering with excellence. She's removed from the status quo of female acoustic singer/songwriters, and does a great job on her album, To Kiss You.

Her album opener, Shooting for the Moon, is a catchy pop-rock tune that's a perfect road trip song. Well blended backing vocals surround her lead, and the band performs with zeal. On a later track, To Kiss You, she slows things down to pose statements like, "I wish I would have known you were the one." She's got just enough grit in her voice, you know she's real.

On her final track, In The End, Handal softly plays the piano as she eloquently sings of leaving worries behind. Its perhaps her best song on the entire album.

Handal does a fantastic job writing and executing her songs. Be sure to look for her!
RATING: 4.5 of 5 stars
