“Salafranca has a style that’s hard to peg, but it lies somewhere on the “Bjork-meets-Sara McLachlan-and-takes-her-to-a-Tori Amos-show” section of the spectrum. But, in fairness, that doesn’t sum her up entirely. Not at all…
“While Alexandra displays a distinct ‘crooner’ style, it is obvious she can step up to the plate and bring the Rock strong with songs like “Freak Out”…..
… I can’t wait to see how her singing career develops, and see incredible potential in her song-writing abilities. Kevin The Nanobot Rock Team reviews
