Margo ValianteI Can't Pray
As produced by Rich Brotherton, Margo Valiante's blues on five-song EP I Can't Pray favor the Bonnie Raitt/Americana style. That's a comfortable and expressive place for Valiante to be since relocating to Austin. With warm organ work from Riley Osbourn and supple suede vocals, there's an overall soulfulness that buys her a ticket into the ranks of Austin's established female vocalists.
