Santi White creates music that is very catchy and almost Pop-y. But she manages to do it with a legitimate punk or hip hop or reggae edge, depending on the song. The album has an 80's feel to it, which brings back memories for us 30-somethings..True, there is nothing that ventures into new territory per se. But in terms of execution, the production, music and vocals add up to a very enjoyable listen.

“Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances. You just have to live life to the fullest. Laugh as much as you can; spend all your money; tell someone how you feel; tell someone off; speak out; dance in the pouring rain; hold someones hand; comfort a friend; pig out; fall asleep watching the sun come up; smile until your face hurts; don’t be afraid to take chances or fall in love and most of all live in the moment because when you look back one day, knowing you have no regrets, thats what’s going to make you smile. Because life is a gift to be opened, not a problem to be solved. So go out, party hard, trip and fall, do whatever you please. Because it’s your life and every second is one you’ll never get back.”

"..it’s easier to say, “I hate you,” than “I miss you, I wish we didn’t fight; I wish you would call me sometimes.” Because sometimes, it’s easier to think, screw life, screw work, screw everything, than admit that you’re overwhelmed and feel like you’re drowning. Because sometimes, it’s easier to admit the simple things than say the hard things and realize how much you’ve been struggling and how much you feel as if life has gone out of your control."

Her sound has a hauntingly poetic beauty, not only in the music, but in her lyrics. The emmy nominated songstress weaves a beautifully serene fabric that you can almost reach out and touch, and she punctuates it with her soulful voice with a soft, but defined edge.
Her magic stems and flourishes from the fact that with her entirely unique lyrics, smooth and somewhat melancholy sound, she is unlike anything I have heard before, but she makes it all so familiar. She leaves me feeling like someone has walked through the hidden parts of my mind and heart, and lovingly and carefully spoke (or sang as the case may be) it out loud when I couldn't find the words..

"We had said goodbye so many times before, but somehow our paths always managed to cross and we ended up in each other's arms. But now when we said this goodbye. I have this feeling that I will never see you again. And that really hurts because I know that we are meant to lead our own separate lives. And I honestly don't wanna cross your path in the future ‘cause I don't want all these feelings to come back and have to try and get over you all over again."

If you ask why I’m not interested in someone, I might say their nose is too big, or they don’t know how to dress, or they’re too thin or too fat or too plain. But the truth is, I only notice those things because of the real reason—that I’m just not feeling anything. But people don’t want to hear that. They always want an explanation. So I have to come up with something concrete even though feelings aren’t like that. If I did meet a guy and I felt happy with him for whatever reason, I wouldn’t give a rat’s ass what he wore or how tall he was or what he did for a living. But when i’m with someone and it just doesn’t feel right, that’s when I start noticing the bad haircut or unibrow. And it’s true that tomorrow I may go home with someone who you think is totally wrong for me. And the next day I might meet a perfectly nice guy who you think I should feel excited about, but I don’t. But if I do go home with someone, it means for a change, something feels right. For a change, I’m feeling hopeful..
I love this cover of the Womack & Womack song! It's truly amazing! Whenever I hear goodbyes, reminds me baby of you I break down and cry, next time I'll be true..Fever for lost romance reminds me baby of you And I took a crazy chance Next time I'll be true..
