Mahendran describes her 10-track album as "a kind of obsession that we've all felt at some point in your lives, whatever the object of that affection may have been." The jazz vocalist unleashes a variety of tunes from head intoxication ("Freddie Freeloader") to quiet desperation ("Now or Never"). She explores her musical style as a songwriter, blending together pop, jazz and R&B influences.
Mahedran compares her talent to that of Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday to contemporary jazz vocalists Natalie Cole and Diane Schuur to pop and R&B icons such as Annie Lennox and Whitney Houston. Her vocals are both soulful and intriguing. She explores the depthness of a love affair, from beginning to end. Listen to the haunting vocals of "Calling You" to a sense of regret in "Killing a Fool."
Mahendran seeks to win an audience, not only in Canada but in the U.S. "Never Do Without You" just may be the ticket.
