ARTIST OVERALL RATINGS
Rosanna Riverso is a versatile artist who has full control of her music and direction. Riverso comes rather close to doing everything herself; writing and selecting her own material, producing it, and then releasing it on her own record label. Despite the lack of help, Riverso has not resigned herself to obscurity; she has performed and recorded with major recording artists such as Mark Masri, Il Volo and The Priests. She also won the Best Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2011 Hamilton Music Awards. Her first full length album is, at a glance, just another collection of sacred songs, consisting of 'Panis Angelicus', 'Ave Maria', 'Pie Jesu' and Cohen's 'Hallelujah' but it is unique nonetheless. Nine of the tracks from Let There Be Peace are her original songs and the arrangements give each of the covers a different sound. Fans of the lighter classical sound will love Riverso's folksy take of the classics. Her voice is very adaptable; pure for her classical pieces, gentle and expressive for her contemporary and a sultry tone for her more jazzy numbers; fans of Phillippa Lusty who shares all these traits are likely to be drawn to Riverso.
