"Down 2 Us" by Roshan & Shivani (Pop Artist from Hawaii(HI))

Roshan & Shivani deftly mix Adult Contemporary andJazz influences into their Pop rhythms andUrban grooves on the terrific 11-song CD, "Down 2 Us." With Roshan's splendid guitar work providing the framework, Shivani's warm and supple voice weaves in and around melodies with inspired freshness. On the playful "Simon Says," for example, Roshan's funky guitar work is the perfect backdrop to Shivani's sly and effervescent vocal, a danceable combination of pure delight. On the blues-inspired "The Last Ride," Roshan expertly channels B.B. King's tone and phrasing while Shivani gives a nuanced and impeccable performance that's a testament to the genre's enduring legacy. "Anything You Want" is a solid R&B number bolstered by horns and spot-on rhythm section, whereas the Caribbean-flavored "Mankind" delivers its uplifting message with bountiful joy. Boasting all original songs, Roshan & Shivani's "Down 2 Us" CD is an Urban-leaning, Pop-infused collection that finds two fine performers at the top of their respective games.
