This fresh-faced trio may hail from Fort Worth, but 3 of Hearts are most certainly not part of any edgy Texas music scene.
This fresh-faced trio may hail from Fort Worth, but 3 of Hearts are most certainly not part of any edgy Texas music scene. Picture, if you dare, Shedaisy Lite. Byron Gallimore is unabashedly Nashville's top pop producer, and these girls—Blaire Stroud, Katie McNeill, and Deserea Wasdin—possess angelic voices. "Love Is Enough," "It Happened to Me," "The Hard Way," and "Sugar and Daisies" are peppy-squared, nearly interchangeable midtempos, and "6,8,12," "Wash Away This Kiss," and "Over the Edge" are note-bending, Boyz II Men-style ballads. Make no mistake, this sounds like radio; with the highly skilled Gallimore at the controls and three young ladies with personality and vocal dexterity (not to mention looks) to burn, it goes without saying that this record is ear candy. It may come from Nashville, but even with the most loose, liberal translation, no way is this anything close to country music.—RW
