There's Christian rock, Christian pop, Christian metal, so why not Christian R&B? This is the question posed by singer-songwriter Eartha with SIDEBARS. Were it not for the spiritual nature of the lyrics--which never hit the listener over the head either--one would assume this was another contemporary R&B offering in the vein of Beyonce, Brandy, or what-have-you. Even more impressive than her inclusion of Christian themes into a funky R&B context, though is Eartha's musical gift. What really sets her apart from other modern R&B singers is that with the exception of drums, she plays every instrument heard on her album, and wrote or co-wrote every single song. This multi-talented artist's triumph, then, is both spiritual and aesthetic.
