Call in to speak with the host
Ask Abiah, (formerly known in the industry as Jeremiah), how he felt going in to record his sophomore studio album and this artist can sum it up in one word.
Abiah has certainly achieved success on that front. As with his previous album, 2006’s Chasing Forever (Universal Republic), the new album, Life As A Ballad, boasts of gems like the gorgeous opener, "September", a well orchestrated melange of achingly mature lyric writing full throated, flowing and tautly controlled vocal drama, lush Beatles-esque harmonies and transcendent, transporting melodicism. There is also the poignant "Doves", a modern interpretation of a Prince classic, as well as seven other self-penned originals.
It's good to talk.
