PART 1 OF THIS WEEK’S 2 GUEST POSTS BY ELLE PUCKETT FROM ‘POEMA’:
“Pretty Speeches is the latest project from Elle & Shealeen Puckett of Poema. This five-song EP marks the first independent release from the duo since parting ways with Tooth & Nail Records in 2014. Recorded in their adopted hometown of Nashville, TN with producer Nolan Rossi, they’ve taken their sound in a different direction by injecting laid-back, guitar driven, alt-pop vibes.“
Elle’s 1st Track Pick : First of all, Nina Persson’s lyrics are incredible. She has the most spot on, interesting way of saying things. She’s swedish and so I think there’s a slight difference in how she decides to word things because of the differences in language…I adore it. And musically, so creative. The song is already good, and then the bridge comes and makes it perfect.
