Our Rating:
For every Avril Lavigne or Taylor Swift there are surely countless thousands, if not millions, of wannabe women singers desperately searching for a big break. Lesa Lowalski is another.

The steep climb to the top means being prepared to play open mic gigs to busk in shopping malls. This requires both a thick skin and plenty of self belief. Lowalski is just 17 but, based on the strength of her debut EP, she has both.

Her songs show an affirmative attitude and an ear for good pop tune as well as a capacity for level headedness. Looking But Not Finding is ostensibly about unrequited love but might also be taken as a pragmatic commentary on her musical aspirations including, as it does, the recognition that "the further you climb the harder you fall".

Hearts Of Gold demonstrates her affection for her home town of Paisley in the Lowlands of Scotland while the title track and The Very End show that she has enough feisty spirit to challenge the hecklers and doubters who try to put her down.

Far from star quality but it's early days yet and this record can be counted as a stepping on the first rung of the ladder towards greater things.
