Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

China Forbes

'78

2008-05-05

China Forbes is the lead singer for Pink Martini...a west coast band with a "cult" following. This is China's first solo effort. I liked the CD...it is very mellow, pop music. Influences a bit by Cheryl Crow, and Joni Mitchell. All songs were written by China. Reading other reviews, it seemed that fans of Pink Martini were split on the CD...apparently this is a different genre. Other reviewers really liked the sound. A few of my favorite cuts were '78 (the title cut) and Time on my Hands. Very mellow sound. – John Rumery
