Victoria Rummler is an American singer brought up on folk, jazz and funk.

To start off this album of mostly original tunes she chose “Guys with Ties”, a real hymn to anti-stress. Am I Am is very “Pop” with plenty of good vibes.

It’s an album by a great vocalist who transports us into emotional country filled with sensitivity and intimate confessions but there’s humor as well; check out the traditional “Freres Jacques” reworked with the creative use of onomatopoeia. The album will interest fans of Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Ani DiFranco, Sherryl Crowe and Susan Vega.
