Clemmons lacks zest


DESPITE the album title's assertions, Texan Jessica Clemmons is unlikely to become a permanent feature in the UK charts with debut Permanent.
This is no slight on Clemmons herself, whose voice is clearly passable - she's the singer of choice for sporting events in her native Houston, by all accounts.
However her pipes are put to no good use singing Permanent's formulaic pop soul tracks that would have been more at home in the early '90s.
These have then been polished so hard at the production desk that they are completely devoid of any kind of distinguishing features whatsoever.
The resulting music is so middle of the road, it's amazing that Clemmons hasn't got cat's eyes.
