"Akua Naru comes storming back into the world with a vigorous exploration of the neo-soul canon, unveiling her feature-loaded "The Miner's Canary" LP for the heads to lap up. Though there's certainly a touch of that early 2000s soul steez deeply embedded, the album acts as a sprawling discourse in black music and history, reclaiming rock n roll, mutating the blues and keeping soul so close to heart it's almost an afterthought.

Sharp, poignant lyricism spread over heady and at times raw treatments gets offset by just enough of those cool-out moments to give you some room to exhale. What's more,"The Miner's Canary" taps a legion of pioneers to help craft these luscious musical concoctions, including, but certainly not limited to Daru Jones, Cody ChesnuTT, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Christian Scott, the legendary Bernard Purdie and so many more. If this serves as an introduction to the endlessly dope styles of one Akua Naru, then jump back and peep the soulful styles."
