Singer, songwriter, musician Sue Maskaleris recently released her new studio album titled “Love Is The Key.” It features eleven tracks that showcase the many different styles of music that Sue simply loves and will have you falling in love with also. The album begins with the ticking rhythm of “Procrastination,” which takes off with Sue’s vocal excitement. The tempo slows down for the gentle flow of “Bliss,” which wraps you up like a warm blanket on cold winter night. I feel that a musical is in her future, as she sings in Portuguese on “March Of The Refugee (Dire),” the choir sings in English and you can picture this big stage number. Sue delivers a swinging jazz vibe for “Love Is The Key,” which appears again at the end of the album in edited form. She returns to singing in Portuguese once again during the samba-movement of “Voce Pra Mim,” before finishing with a loving duet with Luiz Simas on “Summer” and the elegant jazz of “Flay Away,” as the music is the featured guest on this closing number.
