Acoustic by Britt Nicole
"...will please Britt Nicole fans as well as earn some new ones for this devoted and talented young lady."
We were first introduced to North Carolina native Britt Nicole in 2007 when her “You” hit the airways with a vengeance as part of her debut CD Say It. Then in 2009 with The Lost Get Found CD she continued to make great music with a positive message for all ages, teens and beyond.
Her latest offering, Acoustic, is no exception. This six song CD features some lighter versions of her popular songs along with a new track, “Found By You”. Britt's unique pop flavor rivals Ke$ha, Katy Perry, and Krystal Meyers, and her blend of Christian/pop culture lyrics covers it all.
While Acoustic is true to its name, it manages to create a new flavor for Britt's sound. Light drums and piano blend with smooth guitar to accompany her breathy voice, a change from her pop dance music sound.
Her single “Walk on the Water”, which was played on a Biggest Loser episode, is one of the standout tracks on the album. Britt's mother had always wanted to start a home for troubled teen girls, and she struggled with how to begin. She wrote the song to encourage her mother to step out and do whatever God has called her to do. Since then her mom has done just that, and is now letting girls come and live in their home while they pursue their dreams.
Britt's positive upbeat message comes out loud and clear on “Set the World on Fire” as she prays “I wanna set the world on fire until it's burning bright for you. It's everything that I desire. Oh, can I be the one you use?”
