CDs by Penny Jo Pullus

Penny Jo Pullus blends keening country vocals with smart pop sensibilities to come up with an album that has something for most everyone, whether the traditional-sounding "Hardly A Day Goes By" or "Romeo," which borders on power-pop. The disc really gets moving as you move into the second half of this batch of 13 songs.

'Don't Get Me Started" features a burbling organ and rambunctious guitar while "What About Tomorrow" contains Springsteenian organ for good effect. Pullus tries her hand at a range of genres and has just enough of a catch in her voice to make the recipe work. (512-413-6249)
