REVIEW:

Amber Ojeda by Amber Ojeda (2008)

"The San Diego skyline has a new spotlight lit and it’s directed at upcoming, vibrant and soulful siren Amber Ojeda. Not a fan of the hip-hop sound, I have found myself attracted to this jazz/soul feel with the accents of hip hop attitudes melded in. Amber is heavy with a velvet purr, which adds a romantic signature to her sound."
